A World of Pain

Whither Firefox?

It’s a long time since I experienced the Web without ad-blocking, without noscript.  Individual sites may have changed for better or worse, but overall it remains a whole world of pain.

I don’t even mind adverts.  What I need to block is crap that moves: animations, tickers, slideshows, etc, including those that aren’t adverts at all but are just some deezyner’s wet dream.  And it turns out there’s a lesser nuisance alongside those: sites that put up a huge great dialogue box where I have to agree T&Cs, and usually telling me about their cookies, before viewing the page.

Goodbye, Firefox.  Hello Chromium.  Probably won’t look back (at least for general browsing) until and unless I start getting grief with the latter.
