Is it just me? [May. 30th, 2009|06:58 pm]

Or does Firefox seem to get worse with every new release?

I think so...I've had to install and uninstall it several times in the last few months. :P

That's what I thought

I suppose I'd better hope that Google releases a Linux version of Chrome sooner than later. If the Firefox trend continues I'll be switching to Opera, which isn't a browser I particularly like.

Better than Firefox?

If so, I really hope they release a Linux version soon!

I gave up on FF for a while, after version 3 came out. I'm using a Windows machine, but I have to say that when I replaced my laptop, FF did seem to work better.

Re: FF

Frequent crashes, usually for no apparent reason — ie, I've only got a few tabs open, none of them running anything terribly intensive.

Mind you, I upgraded to the latest version of Ubuntu Linux at the same time, so it's conceivable it's a problem with the OS and not the browser.

Gotta admit I'm shocked (shocked! I tells ya!) to hear anything good about IE, but then I haven't touched it since not too long after version 6 came out, which is going back a ways. (Nevertheless I commend your refusal to use it; my bitterness over Microcraps destruction of Netscape dies hard.)

I thought it was just me.

Firefox seemed to upgrade itself about 5 times in the past two months and its been getting buggier and buggier on my machines.

It's not unusual for it to crash once a night on me now.

I thought it was my ageing PC, but its also crashing on my new laptop as well.

Hmmmm, may have to rethink my unconditional love for the thing.

Reality rears it's ugly head

Sigh. I guess we're growing up. :)
