This. The people at the top are just wringing whatever money they can out of a dying entity, and will jump ship once the money runs out. Firing hundreds of people in the meantime keeps the gravy train rolling just a little bit longer.
>I was at Mozilla for a while and it was a two-class system. The execs flew first class, stayed in fancy hotels, and had very expensive dinners and retreats - sometimes in the high five-figures. This is not even included in comp. One time, the CFO sent out a missive urging everyone to stay in AirBnB to save money and the execs (literally the following week) booked $500/night rooms at a hotel in NYC. I think the moment that made it clear as day was during a trip to Hawaii for the company all hands. The plane was a 737 so you had to walk past first class. These all hands are a huge deal for families - many were struggling down the aisle, carrying booster seats, etc. And they were passing two of the C-levels sitting in giant first-class seats sipping tropical cocktails. The rule in the military is that men eat first, officers last. Mozilla has always reversed that rule and the result was a pretty toxic culture, all around.

They should have focused on making a browser instead of virtue signaling and expanding the company.

Opera is like that incredible summer fling you had with a girl in 2007, but it didn't turn into a relationship because it was a holiday thing, or you were from different towns or you both were moving to go to uni in far away from each other.

It's bittersweet because it didn't last, yet there is joy because it was a perfect summer filled with laughs, sex, romance and love. In the end, is a thing perfect because it lasts? I say no. Was it beautiful? Yes.

Sometimes during sunset I will think about those cherished memories.

That's what the Opera browser means to me.

Personally I'll use Firefox as long as it will be usable. I've been trying the latest Pale Moon, and while it's a very good browser (uses half as much RAM as FF, and I love its interface), I just can't get all I need without keeping around Chromium for the normie stuff (e.g. watching youtube with an enhancer extension and sponsorblock). You're stuck with uBlock origin legacy, and there is no easy way to get a dark background when you open a new tab.
Firefox has its issues, but it's the only browser where I can get:

Nothing wrong with uBo, but on Pale Moon you're stuck with the less updated legacy version, and you have to pray they continue to support it and doesn't fall too much behind the other versions. More info here https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock-for-firefox-legacy
It's on 1.16 while the mainline version is on 1.29. Nevertheless, I have to admit I never had an issue with the legacy version.

That's what I meant when I said "as long as it's usable". In my case I would uninstall it were they to remove user.js support, because it's the only thing that allows you to make Firefox fairly botnet free and as fast as Chrome on decent hardware (I'm on a 2600k and can't tell the difference between the two).

I've been using Firefox and I want to switch,
My main concern is, is chromium as easy as firefox to put the profile folder to the ramdisk?

I want to minimize all disk access from the browser.
Because, It worked great with firefox, the profile folder was small (about 100MB) and they offer an option to disable all disk caching,

Is such thing possible with chromium? Thanks

weird thing is that when chrome was released it was considered botnet, etc, and firefox was the standard browser being used that wasnt internet explorer. and yet somehow they managed to take all of the browser market share lol so maybe firefox needs to just produce a better browser than chrome, the way that chrome produced a better browser than firefox

firefox will never be shilled on the google homepage so trying to go for marketshare is a losing battle unless they team up with apple or facebook or something, or get the EU to force google to stop cross-promoting their browser using their websites. (and give people a choice on android when it starts up - like how some EU editions of windows have a browser choice program built in)

Are you implying that Chrome got its market share by anything other than exploitation of its monopoly on web searches and by coming pre-installed on Android devices? It could have been the shittiest browser ever produced, people would have still switched.

It's always been more user-friendly and faster than Firefox, if it was a shitty browser people wouldn't have bothered

Google exploited their control over YouTube to deliberately break other browsers, making updates that did nothing but either broke interface elements or broke performance on non-Chromium-based browsers. It was a deliberate push to kill everything else through having a popular platform.
