I recently ditched Firefox because it quit running without additional runtimes that I'm not going to install on my system and it is heavy and buggy , I am now a 360 user . The best browser so far. It just runs ! It doesn't want a couple of gigs of redist packages (bloatware). I absolutely don't care if all firefox browsers , including this one , will cease to exist . They had their chance . Now start to downvote me.

There are only two browsers left, without much choice. The other one requires way too much memory. I stopped using Chromium (Opium fork) when I found that it needed encryption from the system, and was useless on WinXP. Does the Chinese browser have its own certificate module, and does away with the multi-process mode?

I refer to all Mozilla forks collectively as "Firefox", because there aren't many obvious differenve between Roytam's Basilisk and a recent stock Firefox, or New Moon vs Firefox 20x. PM developers act surprisingly protective about their brand, when nobody is aware of it outside of enthusiast circles.

There aren't any downvote options on this server.

It's widely used now . For example , Opera creates your "customer" profile (heavily encrypted) to sell data to google and yandex. Just look at the opera profile files, starting from version 78 , all heavily encrypted ! Also , if you change something , it will revert the changes back ! The  Chinese browser have its own certificate module, but not all certs are in it , you will still have to update some of them (manually add to your Vista or XP cert store) . It works very well with the multi-process mode. No downvote > Cool !

Yep , I agree , Firefox is mostly for nurds. If I see a profile pic. with anime , I think the person almostly certainly uses firefox and watches Star Wars.

Ask Dixel , if you want to know more about the encryption used in modern browsers. He had hacked and disabled many things.

Well, yesterday I had to install Firefox as MSFN became completely unreadable in all other browsers on my Android 8 phone. So I'm glad Mozilla still exists.
