    By v13, we should have silent updates for Firefox (way overdue IMO). Perhaps Mozilla should also add some Courgette too?

    It depends on how you define minuscule, but Firefox 10 has over 1,400 bugs fixed since the last release if you check out the full changelog linked above. By most people's definition, that is quite a lot.

    If you look at the new features added to Chrome in each release, you may notice some versions have hardly any. e.g. v11.0 added support for the HTML5 Speech Input API and an updated icon. That's it!

    Granted 1400 bug fixes are alot, but those bugs were not around in V7 or V8, but when they "made" V9 all hell broke loose (Windows ME anybody?! lol)

    Do you not remember having to code for Netscape 4.x's box model? /shudder

    Between that and IE 4/5/5.5, they were dark days for web development.


    I'm too entrenched with FF as well I fear been using it since it was Phoenix back at version 0.6 I think, anything else just feels unnatural to me. But gods, how I wish I could shrink that memory footprint.

    Still on Firefox, have been since version 1.0 or so. I just prefer it, its add-ons, and the feel of it. The memory footprint is huge (and that doesn't include the plug-ins process!) but I have plenty of RAM.

    With HTML5 can we go back to basic browsers without all the c*** thrown in (i.e. mr Flash, Shockwave etc.), just a basic program to translate the html pages :-) . Just the ability to view web pages, save bookmarks/favourites etc.

    Since June las year we have gone from version 4 of firefox to now version 10.

    Anyone had any luck with Safari, Chrome (or any other web browsers) on an active directory? bearing in mind they need to be locked down so students can't change the proxy settings.

    We could have more HTML5 sites and dump Flash now, but businesses don't want to. Flash only on YouTube videos with ads or forcing people to pay extra to use HTML5 on Escapist Magazine seems to be their preferred route.
