Hi folks, so as of late I decided to upgrade my browser. I’ve been reading about the hype and I decided it was time to try out the new Firefox 3.5.
So what do I have to say about Firefox 3.5? WOW! It’s stable, it’s fast, and it’s just plain awesome. I find I don’t have as many issues with the software at version 3.5 now such as crashes or leaks. It also renders pages lightning quick! There have been a few people talking about how Chrome is faster, but it’s not that much faster. Firefox is still quick enough to be worthy competition in my opinion.
Also Firefox has an established install base of add-ons and themes that are widely available. Things such as IE tab will allow you to move to Firefox but still use Internet Explorer localized into a Firefox tab so you can still do all your work out of one browser. This will make the transition easy for you current IE users.
You can download Firefox 3.5 here, and you can download the IE tab add-on here. I also recommend you change your theme to something other than the default. Two of my favourite Firefox themes are Noia 2.0 (eXtreme) and Gradient iCool(Blue).
