Quite Decent, could be better

I've had a pretty decent experience overall with Metamask, though I will say recently it's been crashing a lot for me (the desktop extension on Chrome). Not entirely sure why. With that being said, the level of interoperability this product provides is quite incredible, and the UX has also improved over time.

A good wallet tainted by a poor network fees.

The trouble is that the fees on the etherium network are so high that the cost of transfers and withdrawls are prohibitive. In many cases it can cost more to swap/withdraw than the value of your wallet balance. I feel bad for metamask as the app is quite good, and its clear that they have invested a lot in it.

Overview

MetaMask, developed by ConsenSys Software Inc., is a software cryptocurrency wallet primarily used to interact with the Ethereum blockchain. Available as a browser extension and a mobile app, MetaMask allows users to access and manage their Ethereum wallet, facilitating interactions with decentralized applications (dApps). It supports storing and managing account keys, broadcasting transactions, and sending and receiving Ethereum-based cryptocurrencies and tokens. A key feature of MetaMask is its ability to integrate smart contract functionality with various websites and dApps through JavaScript code, acting as an intermediary for action prompts, signature requests, or transaction requests.

MetaMask includes an integrated service called MetaMask Swaps for exchanging Ethereum tokens by aggregating several decentralized exchanges to find optimal exchange rates, charging a small service fee. As of November 2021, MetaMask's browser extension had over 21 million monthly active users, indicating its significant popularity and widespread use in the cryptocurrency community
