[Redmondpie]Download Firefox Final from mozilla ftp! - Page 2

post #11 of 64
I got tired of FF breaking all of my most loved add-ons with every new version, so I switched to Chrome, and I can't see ever looking back. FF seems as flawed and outdated as IE anymore, and sometimes even more so.

Granted I don't use a ton of add-ons, just 4 or 5 must haves, but long as I leave compatibility checking turned off, they all work fine for me. Even in the Alpha builds, 6-7, etc. Are you saying they won't work due to the compatibility check saying it won't so you can't install them or you have actually installed them and they are broke? With the flag turned off, or the Plugin Compatibility Addon installed, I've found that most work just fine even though they say it won't.

Some of them like Image Zoom were totally broken in anything later than FF3. (even with compatibility checking turned off) And although I could probably wait a few days weeks and they would eventually be updated to work, I shouldn't have to.

Besides, how are all of these new "versions" really helping to improve your internet browsing? I saw no difference between FF3 and FF4, except that it is starting to look more and more like IE with the stupid tabs on top that everybody seems to hate and change back as soon as it is installed.

Oh, I agree that this rapid cycle isn't for the best. I don't like the new UI, and quickly change it back to old 3.xx style as soon as I install it. The only reason I upgrade is for the slight speed increases and security updates. I was just making sure you were aware of the compatibility addon. For the most part it will allow most of them to work again even on version 6 and 7 alpha's. At leas the more popular ones. I'm sure there are quite a few less updated ones that will break and that is a huge pain with such a fast paced update cycle. I for one hate the new super fast update cycle, along with chromes. It is a stupid marketing strategy to make it appear they are doing more, when really all they are doing is adding less per updated than before. Bigger version numbers=better for most people.

Your complaints against Firefox can also be said of Chrome. Yet you praise Chrome despite it being buggy at times just like Firefox.

I was a dedicated FF user since the very first version about 6 years ago and was very much into the grassroots campaign when it first came out. Back then before I had my own IT business I worked at a shop where we put it on all of our customer's computers and showed them all the advantages. We mostly did it to get the word out more that there were actually alternatives to IE.

It took a lot of putting up with buggy performance, crashes, having to change config files, and add-on incompatibility issues with different versions to get me to switch to Chrome. Now that I have gone to Chrome full-time have not had a glitch, crash, or incompatibility issue at all.

And I'm sorry, but even the biggest FF fanboy in the world has to admit that it has become more buggy over the years, when it should be getting less.
