I head up Firefox marketing, but I use Chrome every day. Works fine. Easy to use. Like most of us who spend too much time in front of a laptop, I have two browsers open; Firefox for work, Chrome for play, customized settings for each. There are multiple things that bug me about the Chrome product, for sure, but I‘m OK with Chrome. I just don’t like only being on Chrome.
As mentioned before, GitLab went into this hiring spree, which was exacerbated after the A round of funding. They didn’t really take particular care of the people they hired, because of one thing VCs teach you: hire fast, fire faster. This led to people being hired without really fitting into the original culture of the company, or so I thought. Probably they fitted the new, VC friendly culture.
