Ionno. I've been using Opera for over 2 years already. Imo, it's better than Firefox in nearly every aspect except for add-ons, and even at that, Opera has already began to release "extensions". Should that area trump Firefox, I don't see why anyone will wanna use Firefox, except for the loyalty factor, and those resistant to changes.

Speed dials, tab stacking, synchronization, mouse gestures. I can go on. It does have a con, and that is that there are sites not compatible with Opera.
Bold part made me

Maybe I'll give Opera another chance. Lets just see whether FF4 is good.
IF Opera has an extension called Last-Pass and the format of the bookmark is the same as FF..Well,

Sidenote: You're a mod now? Wow.. I missed a lot of thing.


OWH btw, I've done some googling and apparently FF4 will have its final release as early as Feb.

I'm still enjoying the fact that FF4 hasn't locked up and eaten literally every Megabyte of my RAM and taking up a lot of CPU power.

With 41 tabs open only 473mb is being used, pretty fair compared to 700mb+ of the past.

Opera would win me back once someone makes a good RSS reader extension/GReader modifer.
The built-in RSS didn't really suit me which is why i switched and also the lack of good lastpass features.

Best pro of Opera is the speed, thou it doesn't perform at the top in benchmarks; Opera is still faster when using it somehow (idk, it just feels nicer to browse). Especially once i start installing mouse gestures or other addons which opera already has some built in.
Tried the new opera but there are some extensions i really need T_T

btw the reason i started using opera was the autorefresh feature which i used to get items in neopets(lol) >.<

Okay. Whoever deciding to uninstall FF4 and reverting back to FF3, do not click the "remove personal something something" on the uninstaller box. It will remove ALONG your FF3 personal data despite FF4 has its own folder.. Wtf..

I assumed that it only remove FF4 data/folders and I just realize it also removed ALL my FF3 data... >_>
So yeah. But I backup my bookmarks before.. so phew.

FF4 uses less memory because it shift rendering to your GPU (from b6?), unless you choose to turn it off.

I've been using FF4 since Beta 1 (now at b10), and I've never crashed even once. \*_*/

Only problem I've had is the that the whole window becomes blank once the graphics driver crashes, which is rare. This means Task Manager -> ending firefox -> starting it back up and recovering tabs.

I doubt that is a firefox problem.
Try updating your graphics drivers or disabling the hardware acceleration in the flash.

Although chrome does have its advantages such that it just says shockwave flash has crashed.

It's a rare case so it's not really a complaint. Otherwise to your post, drivers are updated and it's not a flash issue. It's not a firefox crash as the cause does come from an error from my graphics driver.

Nice, anything utilizing the potential of the GPU cards is a big step up in my book.

Okay, I just wanna know, because FF4 makes my browsing more lags and more freezes than FF3.. Is it because of FF4 or my computer? ._.

I'm going to update you with the recent change to Beta 10.

The memory being used by firefox is back to the old ways, where I'm back into the 700MB - 1.2 GB zone instead of the comfortable >500MB.
I'm still operating with roughly 50-100 tabs, but the handling of this is really shitty, and the browser lags badly again.

No idea what they did, but they ****ed up big time.
I was in love with the facts written in my Beta 9 post, nothing good ever lasts it seems.

Yep.
I was pleased with the direction it was going with beta 9, it finally felt fluid and stable, a real treat for someone like me who uses more than the average guy.

Beta 10 retained one good element though; if plugincontainer dies or any flash apps freeze, it won't lockup firefox itself, it will only create an error dialogue and you simply refresh the page to try again.

But I never experienced any crashes whatsoever with 9, so it's not like I can praise them for that, when it shouldn't happen in the first place.

now using beta 10, quite fast and much more responsive, and doesn't lag like 3.6, tho some of my favourite addons were not compatible.

memory usage is quite nice, it actually "reduced" after few tabs closed instead of "increasing over time" on 3.6 last time.

Tho some of the functions seems...weird? like the "warning on close" dialog doesn't enabled? have to enable via config page, seems they forgot about this? also some of the website won't display properly, ie; twitter.

note: clean install ff 4b10.
