#Firefox68 added a view for their website workarounds. And that tells quite an crazy story…
Their pre-installed #WebCompat #GoFaster add-on applies temporary workarounds to web pages to make them work in #Firefox.
Now their explanation however makes one thing pretty obvious: They mostly need to fight web devs. Who either don't test things, (wrongly) sniff UAs or even show "Works in #Chrome" messages.
So a pretty desperate move IMHO, but needed, as it seems.
So the news for #Firefox68 now here is: You can go to about:compat and see what fixes are currently applied. 😃
@rugk Never new they were doing this.
You can see all patches and UA changes here: https://github.com/mozilla/webcompat-addon/tree/master/src/data
