Review from Whitnee Juliette
Update Messes Up Ever since I updated the application it won't load any site. I try to go to Google it won't go. It just freezes and then force closes. So I can't even use it anymore. Please fix.
Not just any other browser Firefox in my opinion is far superior compared to other browser when it comes to features. While it's slower compared to other mobile browsers like chrome, it has a much more robust list of features like Private browsing that actually blocks trackers and tracker cookies unlike other private browsing mode that only delete history. Another thing that is not noted by many people is that it supportes extensions! This is exclusively a firefox thing when it comes to mobile. There are plenty in the addons store.
I like you, Firefox. I really do. But I just can't do this anymore. You start out so fast, but quickly bog down and load pages slowly. Even without addons! Should I clear settings every week? Would that make you happy? And your interface... You don't work like a standard Android app. This is especially clear in Marshmallow. Just select some text and you'll see. You have a lot of good points: open-source, security minded, addons. But I can't keep torturing myself. Maybe we can try again sometime. For now,
It works, but... I wanted to love this app and I really tried to. Unfortunately I'll be uninstalling it. Firefox is my go to on my desktop and when I downloaded this mobile browser I never thought I wouldn't like this app, but it's just missing a few key things: like a double tap zoom, the ability to import bookmarks from my other mobile browser, and the way it handles some websites. Many times I noticed the load time seemed slower and the power it used to browse was not efficient. :(
Almost always the CORRECT browser, on any platform! Hands down, the best. Remains the standard by which all other browsers must be measured. Would have given 5 stars, but some cookie dependent, heavily java scripted sites do not function quite perfectly. O'reilly auto parts' website is a good example. The site works mostly as expected, but always forgets my car when i am looking for parts. I am running marshmallow on a standard arm configuration. I am forced to use the stock browser or chrome, which i dislike. Other than that, functions beautifully!
Best browser but still room for improvement Every browser seems to its foibles but I keep coming back to this one. Things that would make me give it 5 stars include allowing you to change the labels and order of pages on the Top Sites page; and somehow making it a little less resource intensive.
