I must say I am impressed with what they have done with Firefox. There are still a few things I prefer about Avant, but after seeing that Anderson Che has decided to convert 404s into a moneymaking opportunity I had to ditch that app (only because I think it makes it look horrible, like I hit one of those spammer sites). So far I only have three peeves with FireFox.
- Using the mousewheel to scroll is horribly slow
- I prefer my tabs on the bottom since that is where my mouse tends to go when I finish reading a page and I’m ready to switch to a new tab (while another page loads)
- When I close the last tab I really want it to close the page and leave me looking at a blank browser (or what you’d see in a typical MDI app with no windows open). I absolutely don’t want it to close the tab bar itself!
Sad to say I’m leaving IE, I still prefer how it renders pages that are still loading, but with the prospect for innovation running low with IE its time for me to look for the next good thing…and I think I’ve found it with Firefox.
