Follow me on:
Now Firefox 2 has been out for around a week. Have you downloaded it yet?
I like it, especially the fact that I don’t have to right-click and select “new tab”. The downside is that it has been crashing with some regularity, which is why I keep and use a copy of the old “Mozilla”. It may not have all the bells and whistles, but it is the most stable that I have ever had experience with.
duhhh… that was my comment
I’m going to wait. I used to love Firefox but the last few releases have have problems. The right side of wide pages is chopped off with no horizontal scroll bar to reach them; all pages have an annoying side to side jump every time the page loads, on my machine smoothing for various font sizes does not work well so I am forever increasing the print size to make many pages readable.
I will wait until I hear that the new version is stable before I download it.
Many thanks to those who are willing to try it first!
Firefox 2 is boon to me.. sofar it is great working…and no crashing [touvhwood]
And the restore session is great since, there are lot of owercuts in my office area.
Its more fun working with Firefox as i know i have to perfect those css tags otherwise it can go kaboom for me!!
i wish they used that when i close all tabs all at once by error!!!
ofcourse IE6 clients still matter….but sigh!
As much as I want to, I never get any app. as soon as it comes out. There is no such thing as an app coming out clean now and days. You know that the hackers/attackers are already looking for exploits in both Firefox 2 and IE7. Wait a month for the first few rounds of patches to go around and cover the big glaring holes that will be exploited right away and then get it. I have Firefox right now and am plenty happy with it for a month or 2 until my security sites tell me that the majority of the attacks have fizzled out.
I’m not knocking anything…I will be getting it. It is just my security side coming out. Sorry, trait of the job. I am interested in hearing what you all have to say about it tho!!
who gives a crap about firefox anymore. IE 7 is awesome. Goodbye Mozilla, hello sweet microsoft IE 7.
Sure, I downloaded it. But I haven’t tweaked it and sought out the gazillion ‘extensions’ or add-ons (are they changing to the Microsoft terminology?) to make it functional.
It still misrenders a WordPress site of mine and I haven’t figured out why (nor have the developers of WP found why one installation has a problem finding the CSS which hasn’t been altered.) The page validates but Firefox can’t find its CSS (though Opera and IE 7 can.)
I’m thoroughly underwhelmed by Firefox and always have been.
