FF 5 through 7 have been incredibly glitchy for me with v7 being a real bummer. Then, inexplicably, v7.0.1 turned things around for me being essentially issue free.
I seem to be one of the only ones for whom 7.0.1 is a winner.
At v7 I was about ready to give up on FF; I was bitching and moaning along with many others.
Now, Aurora(really FF9) comes along and whaddya know, it's incredibly good;I am impressed. I'm finding it a bit faster than v7.0.1 and have yet to discover a bug therein.
So far it's smooth saying all the way.
I've got both v7 and 9(Aurora) in my dock and have been switching back and forth comparing the two and have to say that unless Aurora throws me a major curve, I'll likely stay with it.
Of course, most of my ad-ons don't work in Aurora yet, but before long they should be compatible. At least Ghostery is working, I hate web bugs(trackers, behavioral data collectors and ad networks; In Ghostery I can block those miscreants).
Yeah, Firefox is real sweet once again; everthing's copasetic at this point.
I may even forgive Mozilla for its wham, bam, thank you mam approach to turning out versions, although I still can't grok Mozilla's rationale for turning out versions so frequently.
What's the hurry???
So what if Google is spitting out Chrome versions like crazy?…"Oh God, Chrome's at version 15 already, gotta get humpin' ".
Firefox is a much more competent and elegantly designed browser, now isn't it?
