Nothing “really” new comparing to FF5 so I’ll stay with it

Plus, a lot of my extensions aren’t compatible yet.

Not really liking these tiny upgrades being billed as new versions. Just because Chrome does it doesn’t mean Firefox has to as well.

Yep, completely my thoughts.

They copied the highlighting of the domain in the url bar from Safari – handy feature, I guess. Other than that I don’t notice much difference (except for the fact that all my addons broke down, of course).

FireFox is going down for me. They used to be so good up until v3+. Now they got hot headed , screwed up, and are trying to fix it by updating their browser every week.

Google made a browser and now today, every other browser is trying to imitate everything chrome does/has. The only time I use Firefox is when I want to test for compatibility!

Besides the fact many of the good addons don’t work with FF6 , I also find that FF6 is very slow to load most sites.

I made a video which I may post later, where I browse to many popular sites like Envato, Cnn, ebay, etc. With FF6 , loading times are significantly slower then what I was using previously FF3 .2xx. Sometimes page load times were more then double. Its pretty funny – I try to go to the Envato blog, and it takes over 40 seconds from the main page – but with IE9 it transitions right away loading in the normal time.

Also with the older version of FF, you could at least see the page load even if it was gradual. Now until it has fully loaded, you usually have a blank screen, so one is in limbo in the interim. Extremely annoying.

I am not sure what is going on with FF, but they seem to have really screwed up since hitting version 4 and beyond.

So bye bye FF6 !!
