Another quarter, another major-number firefox release.....
How does it handle scripts and Java? My son tells me No Scripts is good but it seems I need Java to run certain live streaming apps and videos.
There's very little real world support of SPDY yet on the server side, so any "faster browing" is going to have to wait until it's actually more available.
Indeed, it's not clear that SPDY actually will speed up some websites (ones that are mostly a single large page, such as FreeRepublic, for one); it seems likely that the primary beneficiaries will be websites that have lots of trackers and other embedded bits that a server can guess are going to need to be pulled in for the full page.
I downloaded FF13 yesterday.
I run a program called Rapport which creates security ‘tunnels’ to banking and other passworded websites. Even though the Rapport says it works with FF13, it would not load with mine.
I returned to FF12 and Rapport is working.
Mozilla Firefox rapid release is ridiculous. Nearly every rapid release has caused problems with extensions and/or plug-ins. Whatever idiot thought rapid release would be a good idea should be fired.
I can barely get firefox to run any more with my anti-virus and anti-tracking software. I’ve downloaded google chrome and for now it seems to work fine. I’ll see if it’s cumulative issue and then trace the cause.
I’d get more excited if they were releasing 64-bit binaries.
I used to stay fairly up to date on by browser, but I just wait for the RPM package updates via yum these days.
Thanks for the ping.
another vote for firefox with adblock and noscript.
you can also try “better security” add on
