Depends on who you ask. I've been loyal to Firefox since 1.0, but I don't mind using Chrome or Opera if I have a problem with Firefox.

FF loads certain websites faster than Chrome, probably because the website prefers the way FF renders the website over Chrome. The most attractive aspect of Chrome is the extremely streamlined layout.

Back to topic. Update your FF.

lol I'm gonna stay on 3.0.4 until I get confirmations from OCNers that the memory leaks with Flash are GONE. The changelog mentions nothing about memory leaks of any kind.

Adobe has to play their part, too, you know. After 7.0 things went pretty downhill...

Has anyone tested the new update yet? The previous fire fox version was garbage.

It's kinda disconcerting to leave one Youtube tab open, then just watch Task Manager as Firefox.exe goes from 125MB to 250MB on a still picture of Nelson Muntz yelling "Ha Ha".

I'm using it now. Seems a tad "snappier" with opening pages in new tabs, but that's about it. Oh, and IntelligentMiddleClickums is now incompatible for some reason. That's all, though.

I've been using Firefox for a long time. I tried switching to Chrome, but it freezes my computer so... sticking with Firefox.
