The UC browser is nice but its adblocker is kinda week. I'd rather use Firefox with Ublock Origin. Although UC seems faster than Firefox probably because it supposedly has cloud processing either way UC is a good mobile browser it's even available for Windows.

Huh. An 'add-on' eco-system which is about to implode.....and will reduce FireFox to the status of an 'also-ran'.

 

Very short-sighted of Mozilla.  :nono:

Never heard of it.....  :scratchhead:

Was a FF user until version 57. I cant use my fav extension of replaceintabs-erase which closes current tabs with newer ones i open instead of adding new tabs to already opened tabs which all browsers seem to do now except waterfox.

Long-time Navigator/FF user at home.  +1 to what Mike_Walsh and bruinator have said.  Am not upgrading to FF 57 because all of the extensions I like will no longer be supported.  Stupid move on Mozilla's part because most existing providers of add-ons have thrown in the towel.  Back to IE (yuk!) while I look at SeaMonkey and PaleMoon.

There is nothing so constant as change.

 

I would not be surprised were the thinking at Firefox that the update to 57 presents an opportunity to purge a bloated add-on catalog (many of which haven't worked for quite a while).

 

Those who are still serious about the add-ons they've created will end up tweaking them to run under the new paradigm.  It's a standard part of being a programmer over the long haul.

I've heard you'll be able to re-enable legacy mode in Firefox 57 through about:config.

But who knows how long Mozilla will allow this.

Good point britechguy.
