    Google Chrome vs Firefox


    I use to use Google Chrome but switched over to Firefox in the last year or two (since they re-vamped it) i didn't like the old Firefox but the new one is very nice...and i don't care much for Edge at all...

    After reading about Microsoft's plans to re-do Edge into a Chrome based browser, it got my curiousity up to check out Chrome again and i downloaded it a few days ago and have been playing with it and comparing it with Firefox...

    So, i wanted to ask: which one do YOU prefer? and what are the reasons that you think one is better than the other?

    :)

    Google Chrome Overtakes Mozilla Firefox in Browser Market-share: StatCounter

    That's why i started using chrome a while ago, i know there is always an extension to do something in Firefox, but at the end of the day i prefer it if the browser just happens to include these features.

    There are other things that pushed me to chrome as well
    • Firefox 4-6 were full of bugs
    • The add-ons have to be updated manually in firefox
    • Google chrome will synchronise every single setting in the browser including the add-ons i have across all of my computers without a single add-on needed (to do the synchronisation of course, i still use them for other things)
    • Chrome works faster for me
    • Chrome has that brilliant start page
    • I could go on all day, there aren't any massive things Firefox is missing, it's all the small things it's missing that add up and make Google chrome better.

    problem uninstalling google chrome

    Hi,

    Since you already uninstalled Google Chrome using the Programs and Features, Google notifications may still be running in the background processes. We suggest that you follow these steps on how to end the Google Chrome process:

    • On your keyboard, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
    • Select Task Manager.
    • Under Processes, locate Google Notifications or Google Chrome.
    • Right click on them and select End Task.
    • Double check under Programs and Features if Google Chrome is completely gone.

    Let us know if these steps worked.

    Google Chrome and Mozilla firefox do not open

    Hi,

    Thank you for being a part of Windows 10.

    1. Are you able to open all the other programs in Windows 10?

    2. Did you install the latest version of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox on your computer?

    I would suggest you to install the latest Version of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox and check if the issue persists.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any other issues with Windows in future.
