    It looks like Mozilla is now almost as fast as Google.

    In terms of upgrading, of course.

    ... So long as they fix their tabs. I usually about 20-40 open at once, and it fritzes out every time I click on one by scrolling all the way back to the beginning before opening a new tab at the end.

    It's fucking stupid. And for some reason, I can't downgrade any longer without the add-ons feature going completely ape-shit.

    I agree both Mozilla & Chrome upgrade regularly like every 6 weeks.

    There's a tab addon that manages this, and would probably stop it from crashing.

    Someone tell them to calm down.

    As always, I'll wait for the final release. I hate having to update Adblock each and every time they make an update.

    Why would I want to have a taste of the bugs? It's not like bugs are something good on a web browser. I can wait for the final release to have my web experience "made better", I'm not in a hurry or anything and ads are a bitch. Adblock has made my web experience much better than Mozilla ever will.

    i don't know if it's true but it feels like firefox is actually going faster than chrome now, not in actual advancements, but in version number

    I posted FireFox 5 a little over 2 weeks ago and now they already have 6!?! Damn, they've really stepped it up. Fact is the changes are little and not noticeable. I'm not updating until my add-ons have upgraded too [​IMG]

    5.0 was released a little while ago; they did mention that they'd be reducing the gaps between actual version numbers.
