Quick, grab the tin foil hats!
LoL - I'm definately switching from FF3 when the final release is out. Really impressed with the BETA tho!
I'm definitely liking this. It lacks in a few areas, but seems to be a vast improvement.
I'm the kind of person that has many IE7 AND firefox windows open with many tabs each. I get sick of the memory issues, even on strong systems.
what do you think of google chrome
A cell phone/smart phone web browser on the PC.
Huge lack of options, even the pure basic ones. No faster then Opera web browser. No add-on or anything, bad EULA, fails to integrate (interface) to the OS. I won't talk about the bugs as it's in beta.
Firefox for me, thank you.
Also this is topic was done already, and was on bit-tech.net news. Heck the news is still on the front of the news page. I request a merge.
Looks good and simple to use!
Personally I don't like it but I can see it's appeal.
I don't like it very much. It's all about tabs, and I hate tabs...
It works OK, but it seems very slow for some reason.
There is also something strange going on with the back/forward buttons. This is probably just a bug, though.
I can't say I'm a fan of it (although I am using it now...), I'll keep going back to it as they improve it, but mainly for testing. I'll be sticking with firefox.
So far I've found Chrome has real issues with FaceBook, pausing video, vBulletin drop downs and generally just working properly. I haven't found it any quicker either. Oh and it only runs on my 1 XP PC which is a bit poo.
I'm all for there being choice though
I hear & obey.
Its much faster than IE7. Although, it does have some issues with large (100mb+) downloads. They seem to randomly stop and I couldn't get them to go again. In the end I had to restart the downloads using IE7 which was a pain.
Update released, if you click on the wrench and go to "about" you can update, it fixes Facebook's errors and makes youtube/flash loading a big smoother
I just loved this browser, from now on it will be my main one. These theme and tabs are really something mac-ish.
Really light, reliable and has a few inovating features (shift+tab=task manager). Too bad it's still a Beta release cuz I just can't wait to see the upcoming plugins and extensions!
I'll miss you good old fox...
I'm keeping it for main on my HTPC - The homepage is really something special.
On my main PC though, it's really nice to be able to drag a tab off onto another window (screen ) - I've wanted IE7 and FF to do that for AGES.
Can't you fully configure Firefox 3 (same for Opera) with the about:config page?!
Just type this on your address bar (and nothing else): about:config and hit on the Enter key.
