If you’re waiting to switch to Firefox because you think that Google Docs or Hangouts won’t work as well, we’re happy to debunk this myth. You have nothing to worry about. Firefox works great with Google Docs, Hangouts and G Suite.

Not only do we work hard to keep Firefox working great with G Suite, but so does the G Suite team because they want to make sure it works for you in Firefox and other major browsers. (See these pages here and here, but note that Firefox does in fact support desktop notifications.)

If you had problems in the past, it’s possible the culprit was an old bug that has been resolved. Hangouts chat and video are working better than ever, too.

Here’s a list of Google tools and services that Firefox works great for (not even counting the business and developer ones):

  • G Suite (Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Data Studio, etc)
  • Hangouts
  • Gmail
  • Calendar
  • Google Translate
  • Google Play
  • YouTube
  • YouTube Music
  • Google Photos
  • Contacts
  • Keep
  • Drawings
  • Google Flights
  • Google Groups
  • Google Pay
  • Google News
  • Google Store
  • Google Shopping
  • Google Play Music
  • Google Store
  • Sites
  • And more!
  • Really.

So if you’ve stopped using Firefox because you had heard that Google Docs, Hangouts and G Suite don’t work with Firefox, welcome back.
