i have issues with chromes and firefox alike, from time to time - cuz yeah, chrome is also a great browser, but actually FAR from fault free. You'll figure out as you use it.
The memory used by Chrome/ium is really too much (with several tabs open it can be 4x the ram taken by firefox), so it will never be an option for me.
Chromium used to open very fast in the initial releases, but now is a PIG!
Firefox is becoming better,faster and more efficient from release to release... can't wait for ionmonkey!
Michael, there's a typo in your news. More important than slower ARMv7 processors is support for even slower ARMv6 (which is what the big news is about).
Compared to the typical firefox release it has many new features indeed. In my opinion the most important by far is H.264 support. With that feature and an addon to change the user agent on a per website basis I can have flash disabled most of the time at last. I hope the guys at mozilla bring this support on all os soon.
By the way, I don't know why these guys are investing time in supporting ARMv6 when firefox is obviously a resource hungry browser. Minimum RAM required is 384 MB so I don't think there will be many ARMv6 devices out there that can use firefox.
what exactly is private browsing?
It's a mode that firefox wont save any information at all about what you did while in that session. No cache, no temp files, no history.
Great for keeping my old lady from knowing about *hub
