Mozilla is worried about Chrome stealing market share. Google releases so many updates, I think it's forcing Mozilla to be more proactive with their development cycle and major updates.

You have 4 GB of ram, whats to ya?

I'm dissapointed in 4. But 5 seems to just be added features rather then slim. So far chrome and IE9 works best for my tastes. IE9 when the GPU is needed and chrome when I'm just browsing.

I tried Chrome, and it was yucky - there is no stealing market share when a product can't display a proper, full URL, and half the screen is taken up in gigantic, oversized tabs.

FF4 was an excellent move for retaining FireFox users, who will continue with FF3 because FF4 is a train wreck. The only thing that really got me for a few minutes was wandering around Mozilla's web site looking for FF3 for a new install, because they really work on burying it.

The numbering is a little crazy though, like four new major versions every year - even if they are free, is a royal pain when one maintains a large number of computers (or a smaller number scattered at various sites). It's like when Windows started with the dopey 2000 numbering...

if you right click on any of the tabs that you currently have open, there is an option to bookmark all open tabs.
