Re: Take FF group down or add Chrome

Part 1: presuming by "FF" you mean the Mozilla forum, then 'Object' (it's not exactly an "idle" forum, so "Mozilla envy" isn't really a sufficient reason for shutting it down).
Part 2: add Chrome -- do you mean just Chrome? none of the rest of Google? ...then 'I don't care' (either way, it's all the same to me)

Yes FF is Firefox, yes Chrome is Google and only Chrome. They are both browsers. How about a section for browsers? Why should FF be the only browser with a forum here? No Mozilla envy here, just questioning???

Sea Monkey is not Fx but it is part of Mozilla so part of the Mozilla forum. That forum was created at a time when Fx was thought to be much more safe security wise than any other browser and before Chrome browser existed. Justin was very enamored of Fx at the time. Not only did we get the forum, but if you used IE here, or Opera, or even Mozilla browser (predecessor to Sea Monkey), you were "treated" to a site popup ad (that was always visible and could not be removed) that scolded you for not using Fx because it was much safer than other browsers. I wasn't an IE user but I used Mozilla browser, Fx and Opera and very occasionally IE, and was ticked at that ad when I wasn't using Fx here. So, maybe you should be happy that ad is long gone.

Justin moved to Chrome and Apple computers and no longer loves Fx. He has never fixed the problems that Opera has at this site. The current version of Opera on both Win 8 and XP is awful here. I started a thread about it in Site bugs ...only one reply and Justin is hardly ever here anymore so I guess zero interest in fixing the Opera problems (he never liked Opera anyway) and I would guess no interest in creating new forums for other browsers. Opera users were always told to use the Software forum for Opera issues. I think that would be the official answer for Chrome users, Safari users, etc also.
We were told anytime someone asked for an Opera forum or some other browser that when enough users used that particular browser then a forum would be much more likely.

I'd much rather see an Opera forum well before even considering a Chrome forum.

Take FF down and forget about a chrome forum.

Replace them both with a waterfox forum!

And have 1 forum for browsers and have tags for FF, Chrome, IE, OPERA, Safari.
