Lifehacker -A new Google-fundedstudy of browser securityby security research firm Accuvant Labs crowned Chrome the champion of security features, and ranked Firefox below Internet Explorer in terms of protection available from web-borne threats.
Welp, there you have it folks. Mozilla has gone the way of the shitter. I told you they were losing it over the years. Ever since that there Chrome came around, they were basically like “fuck it, we give up. Let’s just rapidly release like 6 versions in a row that have like 4 improvements each”
Chrome is the only browser that has a true sandbox, meaning that even if malicious code gets exploited, it has 0 access to your real computer. It’s good because it was built from scratch. Not built on top of Netscape from like 1997
Granted, this study is probably biased because Google paid for it. Microsoft paid for another one and said IE was more secure. Either way, I can attest to the fact that Firefox is a real insecure shitpile. One day on Windows XP a few months ago, I typed in youtube wrong and went to some rogue website and bam. Virus. Didn’t even install anything. It just buffer overflowed, executed remote code and that was it. I had to format. Another website I went to threw memory corruption errors in Chinese! What the f mang? How’d that happen? Obviously there’s some JS executing going on over there.
Ever since then, I have nothing to do with Windows XP and Chrome is my main browser.
You Know What’s An Utter Shitpile? Fucking Firefox

Fuck Firefox. It’s such a piece of shit browser. I’m not even joking. It fucking never works and I hate using it. As a matter of fact, for the past year and a half, I only use it for work (to keep my work bookmarks synced and so I can use Chrome instead). I’m on the verge of scrapping that shit and using Chrome’s multi-user feature. Firefox’s UI is clunky as fuck. I hate it on the grounds that it constantly becomes unresponsive and eats memory faster than a fat chick on Thanksgiving.
Seriously though. Don’t Mozilla’s engineers realize how shitty their shit is? No. They’re probably all on Chrome. Fucking IE 9 and 10 are better browsers than Firefox. First off, their auto-update feature is horse shit because it never actually auto-updates unless you check the help dialog. Chrome updates without you even realizing it. Which is how it should be. When there are Firefox updates, they’re too busy adding bullshit HTML5 shit that no one uses, PDF readers (which Chrome had since ’08 and nothing else useful).
Also, is this motherlessly necessary:
Fucking 2+gigs of RAM wasted. Fucking unresponsive. Fucking 30% CPU for no reason. Chrome? 86MB. Q.E.D
I have a solution for you Firefox users (on Windows). Do the following:
TL;DR: Fuck you if you use Firefox. Don’t. It sucks monkey balls.
