Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge … are getting really buggy!
March 18, 2017
Let me start off with a subtle suggestion to the browser manufacturers: get your act together!!!
About 3-4 years ago was the golden time in the web browser world – they were making nice improvements in terms of function, features and speed. Now it seems, the engineers working on these browsers have lost their way?
In a rush to do something (who knows what?) the browsers have become increasingly buggy and sloppy. Especially Firefox.
I can understand Microsoft dropping the nerd-ball with their Edge web browser (which is falling off the edge ..) but with Firefox and Chrome, where the web browser is such a key aspect of their respective companies ecosystem, it makes no sense to me that they let them slide.
Browser caching bugs, bug me most
If I had to identify a single issue that really causes me major headaches, it’s the bloody caching bugs that cause web pages not to load properly, videos to skip (and not load) and pages to not properly refresh. Probably a close second in Firefox’s memory leaks that will slow a computer to a crawl – where you have to restart the browser to solve the issue.
Don’t get me wrong, browsers are MUCH better than they were 10+ years ago. But I fear, they are slowly sliding back into the abyss that once was. I humbly ask the powers that be to stop this slide.
If you like this rant of mine, you will likely like my web development course because it doesn’t have any bugs.
