Smart move from Epic, but that does not make their games any better.

I think FF devs should focus on things that make people switch over to chrome. Such as bad html5 support, flash issues and such. One of the irritating things, for me, is that I can't see comments on engadget articles (they don't load), browser keeps my GPU in 3D mode all the time (chrome does not if there is no need, and usually there is no need), flash player crashing more than I would like it to and a lot more. I've forgotten about most of the issues I had since I went over to Chrome. Ah yes, removing 64bit development? Good job Mozilla, it's not like firefox hogs over 2GB of ram with ease...and keeping everything under one process doesn't help at all either (I would have said two processes but plugin container keeps crashing)

I can relate to the crashing, but the memory hogging is fixed by memoryfox. Flash should die for all I care, because it's slow and buggy as hell. And the latest updates start two flash SEPARATE processes...

As for the comments on engadget, I can see them if I allow these elements on ghostery:

I know everything can be fixed, but I am tired of fixing trivial things that should just work. (not related to firefox) Issues I mentioned are present since Firefox 3 or so. I am tired of it. It's far from bad browser but chrome has none of these bugs out of the box, everything works except for open files instead of downloading them but that's just one little quirk that I have with it. I have it set up just like I had firefox and I forgot that I had it. I miss nothing from it.

PS. Never heard of that ghostery. I just used adblock+ but even with it disabled comments wouldn;t load. Not just on engadget.
