Your guide to Firefox 4 and its shiny new features (Download Squad)

Nov 12th 2010 1:09AM Not to mention that Omnibar is just the the merging of the address bar and a search box.
Hybrids never really suffice. With a separate search box its much easier to switch search engines (just I Don't use Google 100% of the time ... shocker). Also the display of search results separate from history results is a cleaner display.

Also to say that Firefox is adding features that were in Chrome is true, but the question is who will go it better. As history has shown, my money is in Firefox.

BTW. do you have any idea how many Features of Firefox Chrome borrowed when Chrome first appeared (they did some better true) but they based many features on Firefox and not IE.

*I will not continue this argument. Firefox Rocks. And a relatively stable loyal user-base for 3.6 even in light of Chrome being significantly better proves that people get something more from Firefox. http://marketshare.hitslink.com/browser-market-share.aspx?qprid=1. Now that Chrome is no longer the super fastest, it will be interesting.

Nov 12th 2010 12:58AM Web Apps ... that's the the total BS feature, basically launching a web pages from the desktop LOL

And Chrome DOESN'T have many of the extensions in Firefox.

Also, Chrome (being Google) give significantly lesser options to users, has a much worser bookmarks and history manager. And with the bungled flash and privacy concerns its a pain in the a**

Panorama Tab feature of Firefox 4 is nothing like what any other browser has.

Also this article forgot to mention that "The new beta will work on Windows XP, something most other hardware accelerated browsers can't do, and it will work on Macs"

Yea that's why Firefox beats Chrome. Chrome only had the JavaScript Speed advantage over Firefox. And thats now Gone.

64bit webkit lead is not that great, it really is getting time for the Test to say goodbye, the Acid 1 used to be important .. etc.

Oct 1st 2010 8:41PM Panaroma is the next evolution of tabs (virtual tab space), when you are doing research especially this feature is phenomenal, also when you have any more than like 4-5tabs it start getting more and more useful. Keep innovating Firefox!
