Why Firefox Quantum was hated

Not applicable

My experience with open source projects has finally answered a question I've had for years. When developers try to make tools, some users don't want to give up their toys. If the developers cover their ears because of the conflict, they will not hear the opinions of those who want the tools. The only thing that will come after that is decline. It's depressing to see a gap between ideal and reality.



I think the rollout of the improved internals and squared tabs in Firefox 57 were popular, but ending support for legacy extensions was unpopular. Or maybe you were referring to something else.

Legacy extensions were useful, but they were also very interesting toys, now that I think about it. We could build the browser of our choice without tech. But I didn't oppose Quantum because I realized that it had a negative impact on Firefox's performance and stability.
