I like the “Restore Last Session” feature.
I use Firefox almost exclusively, but the one complaint I have about it is the propensity toward “memory leaks”. It ends up committing way too much RAM, which I have tried to address (unsuccessfully to date) by creating new integer and Boolean values.
the only reason i use IE 7 is for that little magnifier button on the lower left corner, It comes in handy.
I wonder if this new version will have that.
Another Firefox fan, especially with the extensions that make it easy to use FR. But it absolutely gags on many TV web sites with current video or live streaming radio. I gave up trying to nurse it and just use an add-on called IE View to go directly to IE-6 for viewing/listening.
The only problem I have on my Win2k3 box at work is that after an hour or so, the memory usage slowly balloons from the usual ~30Mb to over 150Mb. It really slogs the machine....which doesn't have as much RAM as it should.
I used to use Firefox, but I started using Safari in addition to Explorer instead. A lot of pages look better on Safari than Firefox.
I’m running Opera (9.5 today) Firefox, Safari and IE, all have advantages when you get a PC with some RAM!
All are cool!
That's been the one that's annoyed me most often.
I hope they increase its security more, I got my first malware ever the other week on Vista using Firefox, IE blocked that site completely. As far as freeze ups etc you are right Firefox doesn’t crash as often but it most certainly does lock up, certain video players do muck it up. Frankly IE and Firefox both have their positives IMO, so I will download both when they come available.
I wonder if it will have a zoom feature similar to IE7?
Set a Guinness World Record
Mozille/Firefox wants to break all download records with this release.
They want it to be Firefox Download Day (June 17).
One thing I’ve never been able to figure out is how they make money off this.
As long as they fix the damn memory leaks. The only problem I ever have with Firefox is when a long session ends up using 400 MB of my memory even with only one tab open.
I hope the new version will run better on my machine. Firefox crashes several times a day and all of the fixes mentioned on Mozilla’s site help.
And if it does close, it “restores session” later.
Good news! Although I’ve adopted my Mac’s Mail over Thunderbird, I still haven’t been able to get into using Safar, still preferring Firefox. This will probably seal Safari’s fate for me unless Apple pulls another surprise.
