First Impressions of Firefox 3
The Reviews are Mixed: Firefox 3 Friend or Foe?
On June 17th, Mozilla released Firefox 3 browser; a browser with purported enhancements for “faster, safer web browsing”.
The Synopsis of Firefox 3 release:
Available today in approximately 50 languages, Firefox 3 is two to three times faster than its predecessor and offers more than 15,000 improvements, including the revolutionary smart location bar, malware protection, and extensive under the hood work to improve the speed and performance of the browser.
Here are just a few choice conversations from the community:
But then there are folks that think Firefox 3 has been nothing but awesome thus far. I’ve seen comments like, “FF3 is smoother” and “I’ve had no problems with it thus far.” So, it appears to be a mixed bag at this point.
I’m waiting for a Firefox 3 update when they release some updates to play nicely with other web-standards like JS and AJAX, and when adding Add-ons doesn’t crash the entire browser. I would downgrade back to Firefox 2 until a new version is released. There’s been quite a backlash thus far, so I imagine that Mozilla been busy working on an update already. Downgrade as quickly as you can, and then upgrade when they release a new version.
