There are various browsers like Opera Mini, Internet Explorer, Brave, DuckDuckGo, and the list is endless. But among all the browsers, Google Chrome and Firefox are mostly used. However, here we have made a comparison of these two browsers so that you can easily decide which one is worth using.
Both Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome are among the top platforms for browsing the internet. If we talk about the popularity and usage of these two browsers, then it’s huge. Google Chrome and Firefox, both are based on the Chromium browser. Thus, we can also say that both the browsers are fully inspired and made under the open-source Linux OS.
These browsers are based on the Open source license and look similar to each other. As both are pre-made from Chromium Browser, there comes a proper comparison of the Google Chrome vs Mozilla Firefox Browser which we have mentioned in the article below.

Google Chrome Vs Firefox Browser: Which is Better
In order to provide you a clear idea of both the popular browsers, we have made a comparison between them in different aspects.
License and Source
We chose License and Source as a first step in comparing Mozilla and Chrome. As we have already mentioned that these browsers are based on the open-source license-based browser, both can be customized, edited, and can be re-generated by anyone.
In addition, both the browsers are easily accessible to the public and are fully inspired and made from the Chromium browser of Linux OS which is one of the free operating systems.
If we compare Mozilla and Firefox with the number of browsers all over the internet, we will get the position of these 2 browsers at the top. In terms of the user interface, we can find both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox user-friendly. However, the outlook of Mozilla Firefox is very lightweight and simple.
While in Google Chrome, we can find almost 90% of the same features. The tab management in both these browsers is also very similar and you’ll get more friendly options as per need.
As to me, if we take a look at the latest update of Chrome browser, there is one major negative point of Chrome(in mobile devices)which is, it lacks horizontal scrolling. Whereas in Firefox, it is enabled.
Apart from this, we also get the latest and useful panel like Google news, recent, favorite, and most visited panel in Chrome which is not available in the Firefox browser.
Features & Customization
It is very difficult to make a comparison of features & customization between Chrome and Firefox and choose the best. This is because we get a variety of features and customization options on both browsers.
Overall, If I have to choose the best browser in terms of customization, I’ll choose Mozilla Firefox because of its effective level of customization. It has some attractive and decent looks that make the users move towards Firefox.
Speed & Performance
Whether you use these browsers on a mobile or on a PC, the speed(including Data) and performance(including RAM consumption and app optimization) matters a lot. If the browser consumes a lower amount of RAM, then we will definitely get better and real-time performance.
Now, if we compare Chrome to Mozilla, we can easily find that Google Chrome uses more RAM than the Firefox browser. Moreover, because of the lightweight and simple nature, Firefox gives a better and faster performance than the Chrome browser.
Security and Protection
In terms of Security and Protection, we get strong end-to-end encryption on both browsers which helps in not only saving your data but also helps in saving strong passwords and many more in the browser. Apart from it, we also get the insecure connection (connection is not safe) feature when someone accesses any dangerous or harmful pages.
However, if I have to choose one browser, I’ll choose Google Chrome because of the years of trust in Google.
Although we get powerful security and a firewall in Mozilla for protecting the documents and passwords, Google chrome is better for me.
If you are a PC user, then this comparison will help you. Extensions are the need for today’s world in a PC browser. Firefox and Chrome are the perfect browsers for adding/installing the different extensions for fulfilling the desires as per the need.
But when we go for the installation of extensions, then Chrome gives the free permission to add so many extensions. While in terms of Firefox we have limitations on it. In terms of extension support, sometimes firefox doesn’t provide the proper features as compared to Chrome.
This is the reason why I prefer Google Chrome as one of the best browsers for extension support.
