I saw this article on Mashable over the weekend and found it interesting.  Web browsers are our windows into the internet and yet many people just stick with the one they know.  Personally, I am a Firefox user.  I like the privacy settings.  I also think it is important for some of the Web Services staff to be using other browsers regularly for when we come across a quirk or a setting that affects our client sites.

That said, I almost always have a Chrome browser open also.  I use them both.  And even Microsoft Edge.

We do see Google Chrome as the most popular browser across all our sites, as seen in Google Analytics.  However,  I also know that Firefox doesn’t report to Google Analytics, it’s blocked as a privacy feature, so Firefox usage is certainly under reported.

In this article, the Mashable author compares and contrasts Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox across a couple of aspects that are important to the author.  I found the article interesting, but I won’t spoil the ending.
