Why are certain browsers work better for some and worse for others?

For example. I have been using Firefox for years now and it been working just fine, but my brother Firefox keep on crashing recently to the point where he abandoned it in favor of Chrome.

Well, Firefox is completely customizable with the layout and the add-ons, so every configuration is going to be a little different.

People who don't understand how their browsers work often crash them regardless of the browser.

Actually, he brings up a valid point. For a time, about two years ago, Chrome would crash randomly on my laptop. No matter if it was Youtube or a simple page of plain text with no advertisements at all, it locked up and crashed at complete random times. All of my plugins were up to date and I had no addons at all. The only site it never crashed on was Gmail. It's better now, and I don't remember it ever crashing in the past year, but it was really strange.

Never had an issue with Chrome on my main desktop.

If AMD goes down Intel might safely release i9 for $300 and i7 for $200 and i5 for $100 and i3 for free. - su27Chaos<
