IMHO, v12 sucks over v11....step backwards. V11 loads much quicker then v12. I waited a while to install v11 thinking there was going to be a v11.1, now I definately will wait for a newer version before updating my other systems,

 

Waterfox just released v12 today.

 

Just updated to FF14b6 & it seems to have fixed a lot of previous bugs, & looks better too. 12 had page caching issues, which were fixed starting with 13.

Updated to FF14, which solves many problems. Therefore, erased former post about 13.

 

@Hazel, please try Opera 12. It is the first Opera with hardware Acceleration. Just have to manually turn it on. Many integrated graphics drivers don't support browser acceleration features, so you may or may not see a benefit depending on your graphics hardware type.

FF13 sorta has what Opera had years ago but now in a very limited way. (The multi-screened New Tab Start page.) I find it kind of annoying as I've got all my popular bookmarks on their own toolbar. But I have the option to turn it off. So no biggie.

@Corona yeah that makes most of the main browsers having done that now (FF, Chrome, Safari and Opera) ie hasn't done that AFAICT but has QuickTabs

I can go either way with that. I'm a big user of the bookmark toolbar, middle clicking most of them to open a new link, but if I were on a laptop, I might use the other feature.

@Winapp -> Middle-click is hard to do with hundreds of tabs. For 1 or 2, it suffices nicely. Therefore, I use Right-Click + T for most new tabs.

I've a 9 button mouse, i find it fairly easy to use the middle click. It's also ambidextrous, so that may be a factor.

 

Incidentally, middle clicking a tab (in the tab bar) closes it. Useful for closing pages quickly without focusing them.

Google is not yet aware of anyone with 9 fingers per hand,

but they have a Bot looking at the forum now.

Fame tomorrow :)

I would find it so difficult to cope without middle-click.

 

@winapp

 

it is cruel to sew buttons on mice.

9 buttons makes a difference! I'd hate to middle-click 1,000 + times to close all my open tabs. CTRL + W can be held down to rapidly close lots of tabs.

 

That, & right-click/close other tabs.

You can install it separately, but they both use the same profile by default

As someone who has HTTPS:// enabled by default, I wonder how that'll effect me. hehe.
