All that said, just use Firefox. It's a much better experience and after Quantum it's on par with Chrome in terms of UI performance.
Firefox has worse performance than Chrome and I don't trust Mozilla, so unfortunately using Firefox is not an option for me.
Well you gotta pick your poison. It's either them or Google. To be honest, "poison" is too harsh. Mozilla has done a few stupid things, but they're far more trustworthy than other Internet players.
