Voice of the Masses: What’s next for Firefox?

It’s been a topsy-turvy few years for the Firefox web browser. Competition from Chrome, interface redesigns, integration of services like Pocket, and the controversial adoption of Adobe’s DRM module have pushed many to consider other browsers. Now Firefox developer Dave Camp has outlined a plan for the project going forward, saying that the team needs to focus on polishing existing features and removing cruft. Firefox should deliver a “personal experience” with more control over online privacy.

So for our next podcast, we want to hear from you: what does Firefox need to do, in order to maintain the lead? Does the team need to work on performance issues, or slow down the rapid release cycle, or something else? Has Firefox merely turned into a clone of Chrome, so you’ve switched to Google’s browser instead? Or does Firefox need to be replaced by a new, lightweight browser written from the ground-up? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and we’ll read out the best!
