I must admit that I have practically abandoned Firefox in favour of Chrome but I would still be disappointed to see it disappear. It seems to have lost that 'speed' edge that it always used to have but if I need to print anything from the web, such as Streetmap maps,then it is really much better than Chrome. At least it prints what you can see on screen unlike Chrome.
My apologies to Chrome. I must admit I hadn't tried printing pages direct from Chrome for some long time due to the problems that I had experienced before but now I have just tried it and discovered that I don't need Firefox at all. Still I would not like to see it disappear as competition is always a good thing to have in any market.
Google and Microsoft try to push there own browsers on to us that's why we need browsers like Firefox to try and break the monopoly of the big 2.
It may come that we will only have a choice of 2 but I think I/E is going down the drain and certainly not as good as it used to be and I tried Chrome before and did not like it.Mind you that was a couple of years ago.
At the moment quite happy with Firefox but for how long.lets hope it continues.

Actually what we need are fast, reliable browsers, regardless of the size of the companies involved.
I use Google Chrome as my primary browser because quite frankly it's the best there is - in my opinion. I couldn't care less about the politics, I tired of hearing people banging on about market domination and monopolies years ago. Companies like Google and Microsoft are big and powerful because they provide the market with quality products that people like to use - it's that simple really.
