I've been using Firefox2 (v2.0.0.16) as my main browser, especially on UG.
In general, I'm very satisfied with it.

Recently i've been getting prompts to update to Firefox3,
but remember hearing there were some problems with it.

What are the pros and cons?
Would I just be inviting problems by upgrading,
or am I missing out on important features by waiting?

Your success or horror stories are welcome here.


Thanks,
SYK

No problems, don't notice a difference at all.

I've had no problems with FF3 and I've been using it since it was in Beta stages. Works like a dream.

The first half hour was all "" for me, but after that, I really loved it. I do a lot of local development, so to type out "http://localhost/public/foldername1/foldername2" would take ages. FF3's regular expressions feature is SOOOOOO good.

I can just type in "lo *space* 2" and it will give me the URL above. SO handy for web developers... and anyone else.

Get it mang.

go for it, im using it right now and it works fine, its a little different but nothing you cant get used to.
it puts you back in the same page you left off as so dont leave it on pron and youll be fine. i think you can change that though.
updates will be soon

I finally got tired of Firefox 2 bugging me to upgrade a couple weeks ago, so I upgraded. Haven't noticed any problems yet.

Do it SYK. The annoying thing about it is that the URL bar acts like a Google search bar and comes up with its own suggestions, although you can banish that by using the about;config setting. The most annoying thing about firefox 3 is the plugin settings. You can't embed music on your profile using HTML - I don't think this bug has been fixed yet.

I think that it's awesome.
One of the biggest things, is that you no longer have to write the address in the address bar. Now it also saves the tile. So since the title of The Pit is "The Pit", you only have to write "pit" and it will find it.

Another big thing, is that you can bookmark searches. What does it mean? Well let's say that you go to a search bar, let's say of a chords website. You bookmark the search and call it "chord". So now if you write "chord A" in the address bar, it'll automatically search for the A chord in that chords website.

I don't see any cons in it. I think that it also manages memory better.

My dad's at work who do the computers say google chrome isn't good. They all love Firefox.

I got Firefox 3 a month or two ago and I like it.

It's beta bro, and already is more stable! No memory leaks, much cleaner and more intuitive UI (except for double clicking the tab bar doesn't make a new tab, which is annoying, I concede), faster with scripts and much better browser security.. To name a few.
Google are our overlords, but damnit if it doesn't just work swell that way


Any counterpoints to why you put it below crap?

you and i think alike, as does Garth Algar. (hope you got the Wayne's World reference)


my thanks to all of you, especially those who were kind enough to detail the differences.

Harmy, when you talk about the problem with embedding music in your profile using HTML, does that have to do with things like using the code from something like projectplaylist to put a player in your "about me" section? or are you talking about something different.

anyway, i'm sold. i'll update the next time it prompts me.


also, thanks for the mention about Chrome.
i'll look around and see what i can learn about that.


thanks, all.
