IT’S BEEN YEARS since I gave a second thought to my web browser. Safari’s fine, Microsoft Edge is whatever, I think Opera still exists? None have ever offered much reason to switch away from Chrome, Google’s fast, simple web tool. I’m not the only one who feels this way, either: Chrome commands nearly 60 percent of the browser market, and is more than four times as popular as the second-place finisher, Firefox. Chrome won the browser wars.
So my expectations for Firefox Quantum, the new browser from Mozilla, were not particularly high.
