Firefox 3

What should I be digressing about?

Firefox 3

Haven't really put it through its paces, but it seems decent. Aside from their new "awesome bar", functionality is much the same. It is definitely faster and leaves a smaller footprint on system resources, which is all I was really looking for. It also hasn't crashed as yet.

Damn... I wanted to upgrade here at work... but I use too many add-ons and will have to wait till the important ones are compatible... :cry:

Crashes less? Smaller footprint you say?... lack of compatibility for certain plug-ins, ey?...Hmmm...

Hasn't crashed once in a full day of use now... I used to measure FF2 crashes by the hour.

I have what some call "tabitis". I browse with a ton of open tabs. Initially Firefox 2 went down all the time. It's gotten more stable (now it's usually my comp that takes me down), so if FF3 (WOO!!) is an improvement then I'm happy to make the switch. Once more of my plug ins are compatible, that is.

That's because your computer sucks a dick, Arturo. Each tab takes up a retarded amount of memory so you're fucking yourself. :P

Yeah, FF3 is definetely niftier than FF2 in the resources and appeareances, about the add-ons, they should be done in a small amount of time, specially the important ones since it depends of it own developer.

I miss firebug :cry:.
but the new delicious add-on compensates something :D.
