this blog. I like the idea of multi-process. However, WebExtensions? No!!!
As I am a researcher, I find that we live the self-compatiblility way. Quantum Mechanics did not kill the Newtonian one because it works in daily life.
Personally, I have known some guys whom I do not like. The characters they have is that they learn something from somewhere (maybe a magazine or a novel, yes! A NOVEL!) and change their life style in an unacceptable way. As one of the leaders of Internet, Mozilla Foundation should consider the real environment more thoroughly.
this. In the past, Google Chrome lacks a good download management and now Firefox will lose it.
The right way of WebExtensions, however, if safety is No. 1 priority, should be, help the authors of the most used legacy extensions be a part of Firefox, not just kill their masterpieces. Take
DownThemAll! as example. As we know, it is one of the most welcomed extension in the Firefox world. In the AMO website, it is now listed as a 'featured' one. And the default download function of Firefox is much less powerful then this great one we talk about here. It deserves that.
Besides, the author of DTA, I am done with Mozilla, too. I am happy to see that Thunderbird is now depart from Mozilla. I hope we can see a brighter future of Internet. I do hope, that some guys will fork Firefox 56 and in the future maybe I will recommend that guy.
