The final push to start using Firefox over Chrome on Android might finally be thanks to the enormous selection of add-ons (Firefox’s version of extensions) coming out next month. Chrome doesn’t offer native support for extensions in its mobile app. Also, better security.

    IF FF ever implement support for tabs on tablets I might consider using it.

    I only use phone and tablet and to use a glorified phone app on a tablet is not a great experience. Almost every other browser in existence supports tags for larger screens.

    Until FF fixes this it doesn’t matter how many extensions they allow in the browser I’m out.

      If treestyletabs worked on mobile that would work great. Just make the tabs bigger. Then again I think the UI is totally different on mobile so I feel the pain.

      I have been using firefox on a phone since 2014 at least. I particularly like I can just go “send this tab to my PC” and it’ll just be there without bothering with bookmarks, note apps, emails to myself or such.

      I once had a text file on a VPS I would ssh on my phone to and paste links into. Blah.

      Completely agree. The tablet experience licks balls.

      Tabs are needed, and god knows what it thinks its doing when you tell it to load the desktop version of a site. Apparently it thinks I clicked a button saying “embeggen all elements and waste screen space pls”…

      Enjoy it on phone, mind.

          Works fine on other browsers though. Not techy enough to say if your wrong or right, but the experience I have on a Tab s8 ultra is that ‘desktop’ versions are all zoomed in looking on FF.

        I agree, on the phone it’s a great app.

        My problem is that as I only use tablet and phone it doesn’t make sense to use two different browsers so until it’s changed Vivaldi it is.
