Firefox . . . 2

. . . sucks is less than desirable.

I described earlier why I started using Firefox.

Jeez oh man it is so klunky and unreliable. I will allow that it does load certain websites faster than Opera, and it is more tolerant of sites that are not W3C compatible (but, frankly, Opera’s insistence on W3C compatibility is one of the things that has endeared it to me over the years). But Firefox sucks is less than desirable.

I’d start using Konqueror but for on thing: Mouse gestures. Firefox has an addon that lets me use them, though it has nowhere near Opera’s mouse gesture capability.

When I’m writing a blog post, it does funny things to my highlighting; it gives me problems I’ve never had with a real browser. (If you saw the “Milestones” post before I fixed it, you know what I mean.)

I can’t wait till I have to time to rid myself of this beast.

    Firefox has actually gone downhill in my opinion, and I should know because I have used it constantly for gosh, at least five years now, and have generally upgraded as soon as new revs come out. Lately it’s been getting quirkier with every update. They need to roll it back to about 2.0 and quit messing with it.

    I’m using 2.0.0.6.   I was initially impressed, but not any more.
