Firefox 3 in: The Great Update/Downdate Adventure

Filed under: Uncategorized — castlewriter @ 4:05 am

Well, I?ve put it off long enough, people — here?s the weigh-in on Firefox 3.

It?s annoying.

That?s really the most notable feature of Firefox 3. Other than that one change, it?s really not that different from Firefox 2.x in any meaningful way. What?s the annoyance? It likes to ?update? back to Firefox 2 at random and for no discernible reason whatsoever. I thought this was a Windows-only issue when I first began my trip down the foxhole — but no, the same bizarre behavior appears on OS X Leopard as well, from 10.5.0 through 10.5.4 — it?s not the OS, it?s Mozilla?s golden child. Apparently, Mozilla?s golden child needs a good spanking.

And who better to deliver that spanking than Safari 4?
