w00t! Upgrading to Firefox 0.8!
See you in a little bit.
Upgrade done. Now to play with the settings, import my old bookmarks, and get plugins working.
wtf why did they change names
its faster. tabbrowserextensions kills it tho
what's wrong with firebird
I don't know why they changed names. New name is kinda gay. Hopefully they worked out some of the more annoying page rendering issues. (Mozilla's only real problem)
Pontiac owned the copyright to name even though they aren't even making te car anymore.
download link doesn't work....
Post some screenshots? I'd seriously like to find something better than IE, but so far I haven't been impressed
Yeah. It's real slow. It took me about 5 mintues to connect to the ftp.
It looks identical to 0.7. I haven't gotten deep enough to see if they fixed the bug where you had to refresh a thread to see images wider than your current resolution. The image rendering looks a little sharper, but that may be pyschological.
Switching between tabs is a little faster.
Why does it render the color for the quick reply area different than IE?
I seem to remember looking at the CSS code for a normal OT thread page, and it's a specified color... seems like it should render it the same
No need to refresh to see the whole picture anymore.
BREAKING NEWS * Firefox *
Mozilla Firebird becomes Mozilla Firefox !!
More Info & Download
I remember using Mozilla.
I loved how I couldn't scroll when there was a big image. It's slower than IE on my computer too.
Problem with images was fixed.
The only reason IE is faster is because it isn't filled with security holes and it doesn't have a nut hold on your operating system.
Better than Firebird? Firefox sounds so gay.
running it now
i don't see anything different
its fast as shit on OT
