FireFox For Mobile?
« on: August 23, 2012, 12:47:26 PM »
I'm wondering if anyone out there is running FireFox for their browser.  I go back and forth with FF and Chrome on my PC but FF just seems more 'user friendly'  though perhaps a little slower than Chrome.  Anyone recommend FF for the N7??

I use firefox as my main n7 browser, mostly because it handles flash pretty well.

If xScope didn't exist I'd probably use FireFox because it's superior to Dolphin or Opera but I still prefer xScope Pro above all the rest.
I unlike others do like Chrome too.

I had switched from Firefox to Chrome on my PC just prior to buying my N7.Firefox was slowing my PC down.  Now that I'm running Chrome on PC & N7, I'm not going back.

Chrome doesn't run flash, firebox does dude, no reason to be stubborn it just forces you to not have a full experience

That depends whether Flash is important to you, whether the sites you visit require Flash. HTML5 is getting more widespread over the net and besides using Chrome on both your PC and any mobile devices is extremely handy, especially the sync and not having to worry about your favourite/bookmarked sites on another devices.

I use Firefox on my Nexus 7, my Sony laptop and my Dell desktop and use the Firefox sync to maintain the same bookmarks on each machine.  Seems to work very well.
