Why use either?
On Mac, I typically use Safari, as it renders sites better than most other browsers and is just nicer to use, although I use FireFox or Chrome for some testing purposes.
But on Windows - my gosh! - the Web is UGLY with Chrome and often FireFox as well. It's almost comical that the leader in web fonts, has the most popular browser that doesn't support them properly. And, I've found that FireFox often has rendering problems as well. And, that's not getting into what the article pointed out about being bloated. Heck, even the UI itself looks ugly.
Maybe Windows users are just used to ugly, but when I use Windows for website testing, especially with Chrome and FireFox, I often think, "How can people endure seeing the Web this way?"
Yea, an then there is the whole Eich thing. Nice move there LGBT activists! I'm not sure whether to feel sorry for Mozilla at being caught in the midst of the stupidity, or be mad at them for having so little backbone in failing to tell people to grow up.
In the end, though, we just have to demand better. There just isn't a good excuse for sloppy, ugly, bloated, and broken browsers at this point in the game.
