Lol! The official release date is March 13 but the official final version is available now on their servers. I always keep a lookout for the final version to show up and share the info. biggrin.gif

Mozilla released Firefox 11 Beta 8 on March 10th (Build 1 in the 11.0 Candidate folder is dated March 9th), so Mozilla may push out Build 2 before the official March 13th release, just because they put 1 build in the Candidate folder doesn't mean it's going to be the final version, it's rare for them to do another build in Candidate folder but still could happen, or maybe Beta 8 will turn into the eventual Firefox 11.0.1 wink.gif

You are correct. It's very unusual to see the final version (on there servers but not officially released) change. I've only seen it happen probably 1-2 times in over a year. In this case, that's what happened which is why I removed the links from my previous post for Firefox 11.0. Currently there's an issue with Firefox 11.0 crashing at startup which appears to be related to some code on handeling graphics cards. There's some other coding stuff as well but all of it is being sorted out now and another final version will probably show up at some point today.

Looks like they're doing a respin. Best not build Waterfox off FF11 yet!

Thought I'd post a quick update on Firefox 11.0. It's still scheduled for release March 13 but that could change. There's a chance Firefox 11.0 could be delayed due to a few problems.

Here's how it would go if it does get released March 13. Chances are there would be a quick update/release again by Thursday or Friday to fix some problems. So by the end of the week there could be Firefox 11.0.1. Maybe even a Firefox 11.0.2 by next week or the week after.

Just seen they put up build 2 in the 11.0-candidates folder, hopefully they fixed the issues people were having, not sure if this new build plugs the vulnerability that was found though?

The final official build will be showing up very soon today. I saw the following posted this morning:

Verified fixed in Firefox 11 (build#2) using the STR in comment #95.

This refers to the graphics bug that was causing Firefox 11.0 to crash on startup. Comment #95 is how the code was changed in detail to fix the bug.

Hello all!

I recently heard about WaterFox and am debating installing it when I nuke my computer tonight and reinstall everything. (Was getting a bit too liberal on installing apps, need to use Virtualization Software in the future....)

If someone could be so kind, and, additionally, objective, could one of you outline what you feel are the practical advantages of WaterFox over Chrome? I've been using Chrome for quite a while, but I feel it has a few key drawbacks. (Also, please, please, please, Chrome Fanboys, stay away, this isn't a thread for hyping chrome, I'm here to get convinced to switch to WaterFox.)

What *I* Feel Chrome is Good At:

Speedy
Slick'N'Clean
Minimalistic

What I feel Chrome is bad at:
Poor Privacy Controls (I would like it to be easier to erase cookies regarding financial transactions. Click'N'Clean works on Windows, but not on Ubuntu, automatically.)
Very few customization options. (Not sure if Greasemonkey still exists, but I have no desire to go that in depth to customize a browser.)

I know that Firefox has a better interface simply by use - it's customization is great. You can automate privacy natively, which is also handy. My biggest problems are that I have run into rendering issues on Firefox many a time. (Though admittedly this may be due to my workplace still being on 3.5.xx). The one thing holding me back is that I want a browser that loads tabs swiftly, and I imagine a 64 bit version would do that magnificently. (Though admittedly, nowadays, Chrome is only very marginally faster than Firefox x86)
