Everyone really should use FF. its far superior to IE and with all the various addons you can make it do incredible things.

Now, I dunno...Google Chrome looks way more cooler.
But I'm gonna stick with FF for some time, because all my add-ons have made it perfect for me! lol, I haven't even upgraded to FF 3 Yet..

Google Chrome may look cooler, but I've heard it doesn't perform as well as FF. Plus, I've also heard rumors it sends a whole lot of information back to the Google HQ. Something I try to avoid.

As for FF 3, I like it. The startup speed is much faster, and the loading times on pages are usually better. What I really like is the ability to save your session now. That's a real time-saver. As for add-ons there's actually some good ones out there, although not as many as there are for FF 2. Right now, I'm using Aero Silver Fox Basic and Acid Burn for my themes, as well as the Fast Video Download and NoScript features.

Firfox just crashed on me 9 times in about haf as many minutes. I'm only able to communicate with you now because I still have IE installed. Any idea what FF suddenly has against me?

Circumstances? What web page were you trying to open, installed any add-ons recently, messed around with processes?

Yeah, I had this strange problem where Firefox always crashed on start-up. It was fixed after an update. These problems are usually circumstance and platform based and to replicate the error you'll have to replicate the exact conditions and the hardware.

So, unless you are too much dependant on add-ons, like me and Darkflame, I suggest you shift to Google Chrome. It's rock-stable, fast and from the Google stable.

hell yeah! Chrome looks uber sweet! I'm just not using it right now, for the add-ons, like Ellimist said, and I guess I'll wait around for V2...It'll come pretty soon, I guess...

Alright, I'll switch to chrom.

I don't knw what could have been causing my crashes. I wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary and I didn't add anything to my computer. It was actually pretty spontaneous.
