one’s mistake: Chrome is simply a name for a “frame”.

The naming is imho badly chosen.

BSI: Firefox only browser to meet criterias (src)

Google has given money to Mozilla foundation to make Google default search engine per default… this has damaged their reputation and other reasons, market share for Firefox as slumbed to below 10% (all platforms (see: has Google won the browser wars?).

2014: (src: “We partnered with Internet companies including Google, Yahoo and others to provide an improved search experience and generate revenue to advance Mozilla’s mission.

When we instituted a default search option, we broke from the industry standard by refusing commercial terms that demanded exclusivity. And throughout the last 10 years, we have always provided pre-installed alternatives, and easy ways for our users to change, add or remove search engines.

Google has been the Firefox global search default since 2004. Our agreement came up for renewal this year, and we took this as an opportunity to review our competitive strategy and explore our options.”

hope they can recover with awesome features like:

same as when the dominant political party (CDU/CSU) does a 2013 coalition with the “junior partner” “opposition” (SDP, a party that actually wants the “opposite”) – now in 2019 SPD party is on the brink of collapse and ridicule.

pro biodiversity vs  ONE BROWSER TO RULE THEM ALL (efficient but security wise stupid)
