add on syncing be good. also works as a backup, in some ways.
I am an Opera user... mostly.
However, I am liking Waterfox's speed and stability.
Also, I have had not a single glitch, crash or any other problems, yet, while trying it out.
Waterfox 10 has been released and I plan to give that the try out.
Anyone remember the huge difference between 1&2 and 2&3? It was like getting a wonderful new browser!
I can't wait until next week to see FF20 =)
I remember. Then they brought out 4 followed by 5... what a let-down. Hence, why I stayed with 3. Still getting updates and proud of it!
As far I'm concerned anything after FF v.3.6 doesn't exist.
Using Opera primarily (one of older not bloated versions ) and FF as a backup. Every so-called "new" browser have the same problem. All of them are Chrome clones which = to me DEAD software, totally dead.
Really missing the times of Opera 3.0-6.05, 1st Netscape, hell even IE 6 was better  than anything new on the market today. Proof that artificial progress is no progress at all.
all these stupid update versions are getting on my nerves!
the speed of firefox releases has now shifted from confusing to amusing... is there anything else in the software world that moves though releases this fast? we'd be at photosop 45 by now..
If other programs moved this fast we'd have a Microsoft word 2010 that wasn't named after the year
what about cooledit? anybody use that back in the day? I'm pretty sure in 2002 odd I was using cool edit 3000... by now surely it would have been over 9000...
That would be a valid point if the inflated version numbers didn't break some plug-ins.
i think FF is trying to keep up with Google. i don't think its a bad idea to move fast between versions for web browsers, if nothing else, keeps ahead of those trying to find exploits. But MS and Apple seem to be drop dead slow.
Though if it wasnt for FF, we'd still have IE 6
all my plugins that i've been using since Chrome 8 are still working
And the version numbering isn't the only problem. The "faster" release cycle also means shorter support per release. Except for the few ESR-releases, which will have an also fairly short 54 week support.
This means that environments which require standardized software installations with long term support and reliability (large corporations, hospitals, governmental agencies, etc, etc.) can't really use Firefox anymore.
At first I thought you were joking about the name but then I googled WaterFox and there it is, I will give it a try.
I moved to Chrome after Mozilla went batshit insane with version numbers. I find Chrome a much better browsing experience, and of course it silently auto-updates without breaking addons.
Might give Waterfox a try - already used Palemoon but wasn't that impressed.
v5 unified v2 and v3 which were very different to eachother. Until v5 came along I stayed on v2, but nowadays I only use YouTube and Spotify.
Everything said i still prefer firefox to any other browser
