And less buggy. Sometime Chrome doesn't display pages right.

No complaints, feels like old FF in terms of interface.
Most addons still function for me.
Fast as shit on this rig.

So far so good.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Media playback is far better too, the old Firefox used to stutter on everything I threw at at, both on my laptop, which is only 3 years old, and on my gaming rig.
Both have 100 Mbps up and down internet connection and it still stuttered or worse yet, wouldn't play at all.
This is the best improvement I've ever seen Firefox make, it got back the mojo that attracted me to it in the first place, speed and security.

I have a Laptop with Vista , I'll update FF on it and see what it does , The Laptop with XP won't even
recognize my encrypted wifi connection here rofl.gif or maybe my provider blocked XP because it can be hacked
so easily , but anyway .

I haven't tried it on XP yet . yes , I like XP and still use it sometimes . lmao.gif

Although I lack the ability to measure in micro-seconds, there is no appreciable difference in Linux.

The previous versions were acceptable (fast) and it hasn't slowed any. chuckle.gif

It was a humongous leap for Windows users, it doesn't surprise me it was always blazing on Linux.

chuckle.gif Exactly, nothing much diff on my Ubuntu mint install after update - but at least now the Winderz version can finally almost compete with it's Linux counterpart.
Almost. coffeetime.gif
