Default Firefox 3.5 Review

Pros: Fast, as normal. Firefox 3.5 Has more visible tabs, and is faster. Not much of a change from 3, but it will hold up against IE 8, and others.

Cons: Installation was an ***. It wouldnt even load once i started! I was really mad at that part of it

But i got it fixed

So, all in all, good job, Mozilla.

My Recommendation: Wait until 2 weeks, when all the kinks are fixed and addons are online. Other then that, Go get it!

Josh

I have been running the Beta version of Firefox 3.5 for months, very few problems...most of it is waiting for a site to send new info, not Firefox having trouble. IE8 I have just so I can get updates for my Windows OS. I am going to update to the final version of Firefox3.5 tomorrow.... I'll let you guys know how it goes.

2 Computers... 2! I tried it on and it takes forever for it to load. but it is getting better on our desktop.. a little faster. On My laptop, it would open sometimes, but i got so frustrated i went back to 3.0, which i am on now and have no problems with.

I can't get the WMP plugin for Firefox 3.5. I've had this problem since I was testing the beta version, and it's driving me nuts!

I cant even open it on my laptop. But my other desktop is doing better and seems to be opening quicker. im gonna look on Mozillas addon site to see if there are any addons that could make it run faster.
