I have given up on Firefox. It used to be very clean, elegant and easy to use. These days, it is only marginally better than IE.

Use Google Chrome. For most routine browsing it works fine and never hangs.

“I have given up on Firefox.”

Me too. I loved FF, but the longer it is on, the slower it gets. For example, when doing an Email, 10 keystrokes might take 10 seconds to print, uggg.

I am also now using Chrome. It has some nice features.
I also, just this past hour, upgraded my IE7 to 8.
IE has seemed like an antique compared to FF and Chrome

Yep. Firefox can get more features with addons than Chrome can, but even a stripped down bare firefox installation gets lapped by Chrome anymore. Have chrome on my notebook computer, but my desktop still clinging to Firefox, though not sure why anymore.

Of the choices out there Opera is the fastest.

Google Chrome is working good for me so far.

Two questions:

Will Chrome import Firefox bookmarks?

Is there a Linux version?
