    Anyone else download this today? I did and after about an hour or so of playing around with it I think I like it and going to stick with it. So long IE…its been a fun trip.

    Might think about it, but honestly, Firefox has been rock solid for me for years now–and the improvements keep coming, too.

    I thought it was interesting that the NPR report tonight didn’t even mention Firefox. The report was produced as though Chrome were the first competitor for IE. Anyway, I might give it a shot and see if it can pry me from my Mozilla….

    I use Safari more than I do Firefox, mainly because I like how the spellchecking is tied into OSX. I just downloaded the new Firefox upgrade though, so perhaps it’s tied in now as well? I use them both a little bit as some websites refuse to work with Safari.

    I like Firefox. Might give it a download when they introduce it for Macs just to try something different..

    Try Camino with the User Agent extension installed. It lets you spoof IE quite effectively.

    It looks good.. I even know some people on the Firefox team and I may have to give it a try. I like the idea of each tab/window being a separate process that can be killed.

    with all the useful plugins available on firefox, I can’t imagine chrome becoming my default browser any time soon.

    a few other observations:

    – the “stats for nerds” option is awesome

    – chrome is bugging out on me as i type this post. anyone else having trouble with the text boxes on chrome?

    – pages seem to load faster for me in chrome than firefox

    my spellcheck has always been linked with firefox… but the plugins for firefox are far superior to the (practically nonexistent) safari ones (i’m thinking leechblock in particular). that said, firefox is a ram hog and i grudgingly use safari as my main browser.

    Aaah, you folks that need spellcheck (gloat, gloat :lol: )….

    I just had to throw that in there to compensate for the fact that I barely know what a “browser” is :)

    I also like the new thingy. It has lots of plug ins for my various aps. It doesn’t crash my system when I hack into the mainframe.

    Memory management is *MUCH* better with the advent of FF3. If you haven’t upgraded, you should. It does a good job of keeping the memory footprint of FF down.. especially if like me you have 2-8 windows with 15-20 tabs each open.

    And as always adding physical memory is the best way to improve the performance of any computer.. Are you maxed out on the amount of memory you have in your machine?
