#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[1] 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.

@rugk Never new they were doing this.
