Another one so soon??
Another full installer pack for an incremental upgrade, maybe they are looking for jobs with Apple on the iTunes team.
Remind me... It was version 5 at the start of this year? :rolleyes:
Not even the start of the year. Version 5 was 6 months ago. version 4 was March, and version 3.6 was 2010.

I have to have Firefox on a few machines because the CMIS for our website only works properly in Firefox ( :mad:)
However since version 7, it's been telling me that the Symantec add on doesn't work and is disabled. Fortunately, the firefox users are me and the publicity manager. I've set the firefox home page to our CMIS for both of us and we both use IE in school for everything else.
There is the memory hog issue as well. Chrome seems to be better than Firefox.
Not seems to be, it is better.
Silent updates (winning), better stability, better compatibility. Job jobbed in my opinion
Glad I gave up on FF and resorted back to IE9...
Though bet my linux box will be needing an update again... **sigh**
Surely that is just going back into the dark ages aswell? IE9 IMHO still can't be called a proper browser!

Is the release cycle actually any different? I thought it was just a different numbering system in the same way the kernel has gone from 2.6 to 3.0 to 3.1. The releases haven't changed - just the numbers. If you think it's weird - why is windows 7 version 6.1 ? is doesn't even round up to 7.

I got a popup from avg earlier complaining about Firefox ... apparently its memory usage had jumped up to over 350mb!
I've always loved it but my love is starting to wane. Opera works fine on my phone but apparently my processor isn't good enough to run firefox mobile ...
