Apr 12th 2011 1:04PM @Jon Niola I find this so true. The software niche especially traditional desktop applications. However the writing was on the wall for a while, on other tech sites, posts about desktop applications even high profile ones like Firefox usually are the least commented on. Still.....sad day
Mar 23rd 2011 9:17PM @SlashZaku You aren't mistaken, Firefox 4 is a memory hog of several multitudes than 3.6. I started a new profile and reinstalled my 9 core addons when RC was just released a while back and I noticed it. I wouldn't use FF 4 with at least 1 gig of ram. If you want to see Firefox's appetite for memory visit the link below or any graphic intensive site. Warning:it will crash your browser from memory overload. Right now, Firefox's about:memory after visiting that site is reading an insane 1,500,000 K. http://www.mapcrunch.com/gallery
Mar 17th 2011 1:28AM "but no matter how hard Microsoft encourages us to embrace the beauty of the web, I don't think any release of Internet Explorer will ever inspire people to gather in a bar and drink to the long and healthy life of the World Wide Web"Firefox evangelist were pretty fanatical those days. However, with IE 6 the alternative, you guys didn't need to do much to convert users.

Mar 10th 2011 4:23PM I am pleasantly surprised at Firefox's showing. However, I wish they hacked flash too, b/c in reality Flash would be on 95 + percent of all desktop browsers. Your browser is only as secure as its weakest link, thus theoretically Chrome with its Flash sandbox is the only real secure browser?
Feb 26th 2011 1:39PM @ChrisSsk Google up "Crazy Taxi Vs Simpson Road Rage". If we judging based on that legal precedent, Angry Birds has the makers of Angry Farms by the cojones if they decide to sue.
Feb 18th 2011 3:57AM @Dreke You can't be serious....are you actually reading what you are writing?"Opera 11, is buggy ....yeah and not where it should have been.... but it's hard to fix hardblockers that would normally stop other companies from releasing but yeah...... and even through the crashes were easily producible and frequent because opera 11 was releases just 2 months ago, it only was for Mac users so who cares, and how dare you expect software to work b/c you ignant about software development"This isn't your advanced programming class' final project, where rush to send in barely completed code and hope it doesn't crash when it gets reviewed.
Feb 17th 2011 9:12PM So Opera 11.10 is what version 11 should have been? If you read the blog page, some of the fixes should have been hardblockers like "frequent crashes for Mac users on Facebook, Live Mail/Hotmail, and Google Docs"?
Feb 17th 2011 2:07AM Time for a new poll. How many people use a "real" browser, which by definition eliminates everything, but Firefox.................................I kid of course, Firefox for me, with a healthy dose Chrome on the side.
Feb 7th 2011 8:56PM @Aemony It happens. I am pretty minimalist user with Chrome disabling all third party plugins with the exception of Chrome integrated flash it has crashed. It's rare, but when it does I remember b/c i make a mental note of "wasn't chrome with its separate processes supposed to..."
Save your tabs and Panorama tab groups in Firefox 4
