    Question Firefox & Chromium difference


    Good day.

    I installed Chromium out of curiosity and noticed something strange. The picture on Chromium looks a lot crisper on it than Firefox.

    My monitor is a 19" Acer193w.
    My chipset is Intel 8485 something Brookdale...(?)

    Is Chromium better than Firefox when it comes to picture or am I missing something in Firefox?

    TY

    it may be that firefox will scale an image down to fit your screen by default, but chromium does not, and presents the pixel for pixel representation of the image.

    Just a guess, I haven't tried chromium yet, but I highly doubt that one browser will display an image noticebly "better" than another.

    It's strange, I noticed exactly the opposite. My eyes may need some holidays.
