    Any one tried it yet?Tried it today, it`s better but I still like firefox.
  2. I downloaded it, love the search engine feature it has but opening up my favorites or links bars are way too slow for me.


    Got something going on in the background that's causing the slow load.


    If I move my cursor across a youtube video that's hyperlinked on a page, the page will stop allowing me to go down the page.

    The list goes on....but it fixed a slew of other problems I was having before the new version.

    I been using it for a year now, Alpha nd beta tested it. Its not bad at all, it does have some issues with some web pages but if you notice where it displays the URL a white page that looks torn in half that means it ran into some errors just give it a click and it will display the page properly then.

    About the time it gets to service pack 2 it might be functional...

    I consider that to be a rule of thumb with any microsoft product...

    Used the last version of the beta for a couple of weeks and now have the official release on two computers. Haven't had any issues on either. It took me a while to discover some of its new features because I didn't make a point of searching them out; just been using it and figuring things out as I go along. So far I like what I see.

    I consider it, but I have it set to allow pop-ups & it won't DL

    Turned them off & DL
    You'd think if they want to be PC compatible they would work with IE pop-up blocker

    Goggle Chrome is a nice browser. Fire fox was a good browser but they went the wrong way with development.

    I'm using Safari now
    I like to be able to right click & rename shortcuts
    Doesn't work
    I like to be able to right click & sort byname when I add a shortcut
    Doesn't work
    And it doesn't like a LOT of the imported IE shortcuts
    -that all work under IE
    Not enough options for the toolbar

    Yeah, I got sick of Firefox
    - for some of the same reasons I just listed

    Same here. I can't get that yellow bar to quit popping up and trying to save me from I don't know what. I followed all their help ideas to turn it off and it still tries to save me from myself. I went immediatly back to Opera, which by the way is a great browser except that eeeee bayyyy says it's not accepting cookies as does Pay Pal and others. Don't know what that's about.

    After the eight experience, I think I'll wait for 10 or 11.

    Not being a plumber, I had to look that one up. Now I get it. Yup, I flushed it.
