    HAIL FIREFOX.......

    that is all I can think of.... though I have been using CHROME for a while now, but still the ADD-ONS just attract me so much that I HAVE TO GO BACK TO FF and now this CRASH PROOFING will help FF gain back the market what it lost to CHROME, not that CHROME gained market from FF, but it gained from IE, which FF should have GOT....

    All browsers will come at same at the end...I like that Mozilla is involving people all around the world to cooperate and make their browser much more safer and faster than other. It's pretty good that everyone is working and are based on security, which is the main problem nowdays. It's just metter of time when zero exploit will be announced.

    They need to improve the speeds a lot. Curently the lastest builds of Chorme and Opera are a lot faster than FF 3.6 (i personally use FF and Opera), but it's really nice to see how much FF improved in the memory department (remember FF 2.0? ^_^ ).

    I switched to Chrome, but i still have FF, as well Safari. Chrome has really grown on me, but it does still have it's quirks... but more importantly it doesn't crash as much. Maybe I'll make FF my default again, if Chrome starts acting up.

    Great news! It's very frustrating to lose all your pages because one is misbehaving. I didn't know Chrome had that feature already. That browser sure has grown up in the little time it's been out.

    my first priority is FF then IE7 or higher.......coz in most case we need IE for viewing the web page some organization's web page only support IE, I just hate that.....why they just force to use sucha a crap(IE)......I don't have any plugins for FF and have updated stable v of FF so I never get crash......may be some of u have modified v of os then get crash or have some bad scripts on java or adobe.....hope u all understand.

    Looking forward to FF 4.0. FF 3.6 really needs some work to stay competitive with Chrome (I use ChromePlus) and Opera 10.50.

    Crash proofing is very nice, but I would like to see HTML5 finished more quickly. Then it will be possible to get rid ot the proprietary plugins like flash and silverligth.

    With html and javascript it is possible to have some control over how the webpage behaves. e.g. it is possible to block pop-ups. With flash the user have no control.

    I have tried all the major browsers and FF is still king. I can't see how people can use the MS browser. It is the browser promoted at my work because they are in love with Windows and MS technologies. I still use FF unless the site absolutely requires IE due to the MS lock-in of using active x. I rarely come across an IE only site nowdays. Yay!!

    Sigh. I don't know what to say, I recently downloaded 3.5 and am already having problems. I've lost my history and had it(browser) crash more times than im willing to publicly count. Nonetheless, I wouldn't trade it for IE.

    right now neither of the browser are not even close to alike features like Private browsing, skins, addons I'd say those are essentials browsers should have now'a days each browser has something unique to offer to there users Opera that got released this month brought in Opera Unite and Turbo browsing which a feature I've tested and proven to work well for slow connections. I don't want to go all blabering but you get the idea even though there are some aspects of each browser everytime another browser comes out with a new feature another will be bound to do the same either the same, differently but iimproved thats what Mozilla is doing and I think this will really help Mozilla/FF running as stated Flash in a different process. Even though Google first had this feature in Chrome so kudos to them.

    Firefox is great and they continue this time in overcoming the fast pace of the technology.
    Maybe they have to make firefox more reasonable to be used by the internet users.

    While going through all you guys comments, I was wondering wouldn't it be good for Microsoft to jump in, and when Mozilla's agreement with Google finishes in year or two's time, take that opportunity, sticking in Bing as default engine with FF. After all, thats how google got big in the first place i.e. by forging alliances. Just a thought you know, which could turn out to be good business ;)

    The new feature feature called Electrolysis is quite interesting... Actually in Asia most of the internet users are using firefox because it cool and faster to use. The only problem that they encounter is that it takes time to open it for the firefox to load. Maybe it is because of lot of add-ons that needs to be loaded. Sometimes firefox while browsing in the internet will easily crash.... It frustrating sometimes most especially if you are in the middle of searching... Sometimes also firefox would easily hangs-up especially if you open up many tabs.. Maybe this is just one of the common problem of firefox nowadays. But firefox is great to be used actually in the first place it open source and very well developed firefox.

    Sometimes together with our classmates could ask. Where this firefox organization get some money for the upgrades of their products since they offered this one as an open source software... Maybe somebody could answer me over there..
