And the text praises Chrome as the shining light that shows them the way to the bright future. Awesome.
Firefox 57 will change its add-on ecosystem to be exclusively based on WebExtensions. While this offers (some) compatibility with extensions written for Chrome and Microsoft Edge, it removes the possibility to do many advanced stuff which Vimperator does. Additionally, it would require a full rewrite of Vimperator, which nobody has volunteered for. Therefore we will stop supporting any Firefox version later than Firefox 56. Head over to our GitHub page for a list of alternatives or a detailed discussion.If you want to have famous last words, you can take a survey here to inspire future add-on authors what you actually liked about Vimperator.

As for Chromme I wonder when the next generation of processors will come out so Chrome can take advantage of new features, offering more service and joy to its customers.How about processors able to scan the person sitting in front of the screen. So the browser can send feedback home about what you eat last night, or the date of your last intercourse. Imagine the joy of getting exclusive tailored offers of your favorite foodstuff or ultimative tailored offers to improve your sex life.
I think that's called "Google Assistant". Available on your Google Services-enabled Android device.
Even with "Google Assistant", location services disabled and without any carrier SIM inserted, you can be (and you are) tracked by Google step by step.
What do you think the option to disable "location services" is good for?
The disabling is good if you want Google Maps to nag you to enable it.
Someone with sufficient access privileges can locate you by triangulation regardless of the whole Android thing.
Tracking you step by step, every building or shop you enter? Good luck!
Noscript 10 was probably rushed too early, in order to meet the Firefox Quantum release schedule. It does not feel like a complete product, and it highlights the mess that the WebExtensions idea really is. I am confident that Noscript will evolve and change and improve, and that it will match the old behavior, in function if not the look.
Firefox users can see which extensions have been disabled by pressing Ctrl-Shift-A to display the Add-ons page, then selecting Legacy Extensions. You can re-enable them by going to about:config, searching for extensions.legacy.enabled and changing the binary value to true. However, this also disables the multi-process feature. source

Without those options I'll have to ditch Firefox.
Why not keep FF as the single-process browser we used to love and create another for those who want the multi-process thingie?

I've been using Palemoon quite long now and even there I got a warning from TileTabs that it may stop working due to the extensions system update on FF.
