The Firefox/Mozilla Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm using chrome regularly(even though I don't like it) because firefox is so slow. I have done clean installs and even tried it on a fresh windows install.

Chrome does some weird stuff but it has been nice having synched bookmarks between my phone, tablet, desktop, and laptop.

 

Hmmmm.... I believe FF also has sync... Orange FF button/Setup sync.

 

Tell me more. What are your PC specs (CPU/GPU/RAM/HDD size) as well as your OS?

 

Also, what version of FF are you using?

I've just reset my firefox profile, something I've'nt done in a while. Experiencing a noted increase in speed. (Nothing major, but definitely snappier!)

anyone know Mozilla's version numbering convention?.

they seem to like to jump to a major release number when a minor increment would do - as far as the normal standard of versioning goes.

went from 16 to a couple of minors .1 & .2, then straight to 17. which would normally indicate a major release - something new.

 

at this rate they'll be up to version 40 in a few years :mellow:

Google discovered that, to the average user; higher version number = better. Mozilla are just copying Chrome's versioning system (and accelerating it) to give the illusion of being a more advanced and progressive browser.

 

The eventual goal is to eliminate version numbers entirely. Stack Exchange founder Jeff Atwood has an excellent piece titled The Infinite Version. It's well worth a read.

Mozilla could blow Chrome away by just coming out with FF-A.

If they were to release one new major version number per month it would only take 23 months to have a v40.

could have sworn there was a thread for new FF releases but couldn't find it.

 

So... new Firefox version 20.0 released, about 3 days ago I think.
