    Am I the only one that can't get all of Tom's Hardware pages to load in Chrome?

    I used to have a lot of problems with Tom's website in the past. It's simply too heavy

    I also have problems getting images to display often but I believe it is something to do with the extensions I run in firefox instead of anything else

    I just fire up Edge and call it a day. LOL!

    About the only time I fire up Edge.

    One of these days I'm going to have to try the new Firefox.

    New Firefox is good in terms of speed when compared with ones before Quantum. I am using Firefox since 2004 ( or 05 ), and this is decent improvement comparable with time when they added tabs.

    Firefox performance has increased a lot. Quantum is definitely a great update. I'm very exigent with the performance of my browser's interface and I feel that Firefox wasn't doing well before Quantum.

    It wasn't so great for "legacy" extension and theme writers. Now you cannot put on custom control buttons. You cannot enlarge their minuscule text size. I've been using Firefox and its predecessors since 2002. I dislike the current build.

    I was afraid I wouldn't like Quantum since most of my extensions were incompatible, but I managed to find a suitable (or even better) replacement for all of them (all 19!). And I was also able to tweak a lot of the UI by custom userChrome.css mods, so I'm happy.
