  1. Chrome browser

This is here because I promised 25 apps. On dessktop I am a firefox fan. I hate chrome, can’t specify why I hate it but I don’t like its look, rendering and lack of addons. I really don’t know what is the difference between their extensions and apps. But recently I was forced to use chrome on both desktop and phone. On desktop my main concern is I can’t connect to most of banking sites as firefox blocks connection citing “Secure Connection failed” this is good as firefox is trying to prevent “Logjam” attack and this can be disabled by changing “security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_128_sha” “security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_256_sha” to false in about:config. But I hate it they could have given me a warning instead of blocking.

In mobile quitting by clearing all history is no more working, So I switched to chrome.  After a few days use I start loving chrome for android.  It is beautiful, smooth and simple. i like the interface.

Still I hate Chrome for desktop due to its lack of addons. And Firefox is supposed to be in this place
