[FB] First Firefox 13 Features, No Release Date Yet - Page 4

post #31 of 37
Don't sound like any groudbreaking features.

I personally prefer firefox over chrome because of the interface and friendliness with GTK themes. I have nothing against chrome at the moment, in fact I might switch soon because I do notice that firefox has a lot larger memory footprint, with only the adblock+ addon. However, I always find myself gravitating back because chrome lacks the interface I like.

Great, use it on all my OS's. Have an account with them to sync bookmarks only. I only wish they improved Fennec, there's some weird issues that are annoying....

The one thing I am patiently waiting for is that new UX design, it looked really great. I'm glad they have a UX dedicated release playground, I hope lots of people send feedback, it can help shape how Firefox looks in the future. smile.gif

I stopped using FF when it went from version 4 to 7 in the space of a few days, now its version 13? The last one I read about was 8.

Oh, that and the horrible memory issues, the constant crashes and the ugly interface.

What's the UX design? I came to really like the current layout of Firefox. It's simple and clean, and the browser has been fast and stable for me.

Yeah, no kidding. Five years ago, my old Pentium III and 384MB RAM was good to go for the web. These days... well, it still can, but not nearly so freely or fast anymore.

If you went to Chrome, you do know it's charging through versions much faster, right? That's actually the reason Firefox is going through numbers so quick, too.

Again, version 13 is just on the roadmap. It's officially at version 9 right now. It didn't go to version 4 to 7 in days; it was months. They seem to release a new version every six weeks or so. I agree, it's excessive, yes, but you have Chrome, the bigger offender of that, to blame for that, and it's just a number anyway. Ignore it.

It's a number. People who change because of a number are silly. Instead consider the browser for what it is. Your statements about the stability/RAM use had more potential merit than the one about numbers (but I can't say I've had any of those issues).

The irony here is quite amusing.
