    Muz.li should support Firefox with an extension. Especially now that Chrome is becoming the modern-day IE.

    Designerboard if also available on FF https://dribbble.com/shots/1905376-Dribbble-New-Tab

    If you don't mind me asking is there any reason for using FF aside from the lower RAM usage? It doesn't have any features the other browsers don't already have, it doesn't integrate with any ecosystem like Chrome or Safari and the rendering engine is a complicated, underperforming mess.

      Opera is my default browser at the moment, but Firefox was my goto browser before that. Firefox does have some perks and features that other browsers don't.

      I think that Firefox's main advantage is that it is much more extensible and customizable than other browsers. It can be changed on a deeper level. For that reason there are still extensions on Firefox that I cannot find alternatives to on other browsers. Chrome's interface cannot be changed. The Firefox browser UI is editable in css. My current configuration only uses about 35 px of vertical screen space.

      I always really enjoyed Firefox's tab groups implementation to group tabs into categories for work/home/a particular project, etc. The drag and drop interface is quick and convenient.

      Lately, chrome has felt bloated and sluggish for me. Firefox feels more snappy and responsive for me. Currently, I use Opera and my goto browser which feels more responsive than Chrome and a bit less buggy/quirky than Firefox. Opera is now built on Chromium, so it still runs many Chrome extensions.

      Also Firefox technically does integrate with an ecosystem called Firefox OS, but that is only mobile-targeted and quite young.
