[ET]Mozilla takes Firefox version numbers to the next level… by removing them - Page 6

post #51 of 70
I find the funniest part to be how people are in such a frenzy over something as stupid as their system for branding versions.

If something like that makes you want to switch browsers, you obviously didn't use enough of Firefox's features to for it to matter which browser you use.

Yay I finally moved to FF6 today. Constant "new versions" keep breaking my addons. Most notably FireGestures.
AMD, I give up.

If they're still releasing security updates to 3.6, I'll stick with that. Otherwise, I'll just keep using Internet Explorer, version 9 is just fine.
Technically Internet Explorer is more secure than any other browser for 2 main reasons.

1) It's integration with User Account Controls (can't beat that, period)
2) Microsoft's smart filters sniffs & protects against malware better than any other browser out there, period.

So, for those of you who are just hatin on MS, they do make a more secure and ie9 is a really fast browser, despite what some old farts may tell you ie9 is definitely a top choice now.

Believe it...

Are you serious? They made in fact a good browser?

I will try it, but it better not contain unwanted virusscans and toolbars just like Windows live messenger.

You can get JavaScript whitelisting in MSIE by cranking the Internet Zone security settings all the way to High, and then editing the trusted sites zone to say Medium, and then manually adding sites to the trusted zone. Then grab a decent hosts file to kill unwanted ads and you're pretty much good to go.

I know in the old days when I disabled automatic plugin running I could hit "No" to run Plugins and save Youtube autoplaying flash videos which was handy if I didn't want two playing at the same time. Flashblock does this now for Firefox in a less clunky way. I don't know if an equivalent exists for IE now.

LOL, you stop using a browser because they changed how it was named? I think you should choose your browser of choice based upon which one you like the most, the fastest, least bugs and usability for your needs, not because of the the naming scheme.

Who cares? As long as Firefox is a good program and does what I want it to do I will continue to use it no matter what it is named. I stopped using 3.x because it was so slow compared to Chrome and now I am back as it seems to have rapidly improved and I am loving version 6; the name of the program will not change my experience.

People just get more ridiculous all the time.

I really don't understand why everyone is complaining. If you don't like it, don't use it. Don't complain about it so much either.

EDIT:
You should judge a program/piece of hardware/whatever by how it performs in comparison to everyone, not by what it's name is. Think of it like ATI vs. Nvidia. Both are great GPU manufacturers, but some people refuse to buy one brand or the either, despite the performance of the actual product itself.
