    Firefox Beta 4

    Firefox Beta 4 came out today. So far so good. Seems to be faster. Be aware that since this is beta most of your plug-ins won't work.

    So far so good, IMO. Quite a bit quicker than Beta 3. (It's FFox 3 Beta 4 , also, just to pick nits).

    Saw a couple problems with text field cursors but nothing earthshaking. Should be a pretty good upgrade.

    I didn't notice how slow ff 3 beta 3 was until I upgraded to beta 4.

    I like the new vista icons too. That looks pretty sweet!

    And that being said, Beta 3 was WAAAY faster than Firefox 2!

    Also, I must say.. they said that Beta 4 was fast on GMail and stuff... holy cow! They weren't kidding! Mozilla is pushing out a lot of Beta releases, but with the type of quality product they're making, I'm glad they're getting it to be the best it can be before release! The complete Firefox 3 is gonna be awesome.

    Re: Firefox Beta 4

    I think I need to try Firefox out. I've heard a lot about it. I just did a quick search for it and I can download 2.02, where can I get 4?

    2.0.0.12 is the current "stable" version.

    3 is currently in beta (3.0b4 was just released). You can find it here:
    Firefox web browser | International versions: Get Firefox in your language

    3.0 seems to work pretty well, and I haven't had any issues so far. Just beware that not everything may work right just yet.

    edit: In case you don't use firefox, it's seriously worth it just for spellcheck alone in dialog boxes on CF

    Re: Firefox Beta 4

    I downloaded it a few weeks ago, but uninstalled as most of the add-ins don't work with v3 yet.

    So 2.0 is good but hold off on the newer versions until the bugs are worked out? I assume that's your guys recommendation?

    That's what I would say. When 3.0 rolls out, firefox will tell you to update it.

    I've been using firefox since well before it was called firefox. I use IE for just a couple of sites these days (work sharepoint and webmail). Every time I use IE I miss Firefox, and once I get used to 3.0 it's going to be even worse I suspect.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll download it today.

    Re: Firefox Beta 4

    I didn't consider the incompatibility between the beta and add-ons to be a bug, that's natural as the add-ons need updated.

    But I use enough of them that personally, I wanted to wait. If I wasn't using add-ons, I'd be surfing in lightening speed with v3. :)

    Tabbrowser preferences also rocks. And if you have 2 or more computers and want to sync your saved passwords, the Password Exporter is very handy.
