    Hi Chippy - and that little tidbit will make me wait a spell. In the mean time my version 2.0.0.14 is chugging along just fine. ;)

    Edited: I am SUCH a fibber... Got to looking at it and decided to go ahead with the install.. Only 3 of my addons aren't working and they are not exactly stuff I "need". ;)

    In the mean time - Google Bookmarks, ColorZilla, Greasemonkey, HTML Validator, Image Zoom and ReminderFox are all working normally.

    Looks pretty good so far. :tup:

    I only have a few add-ons - Reminder and Remove It Permanently and AdBlockPlus. My RIP isn't working like I thought it would, so guess that wouldn't be so bad. Glad the Reminder works. Thanks for the info, I may d/l it later.

    I just upgraded and thought I'd post a thread to let everyone know it was out. You guys are too quick.

    I used this link to test the 4 different browsers I have installed. Here were the results from worst to best. Quite a large difference.

    Internet Explorer 7 [12.516 seconds to load]

    [​IMG]

    Safari 3.1 [4.969 seconds to load]

    [​IMG]

    Opera 9.5 [4.985 seconds to load]

    [​IMG]

    Firefox 3 [1.074 seconds to load]

    It's really surprising people still use IE, except for when they're forced to.

    I use it because of Windows Update. That's about it. I do notice the few time I use it for much else that it's also a huge memory hog. Especially if you use more than one tab.

    I saw this on another forum:

    I try to avoid having to use IE, I usually use either FF or Opera. With FF being my primary browser.

    ROTFL! Bet Chippy has been shopping the recommended list of freebies on there too!
    Firefox Add-ons: Recommended Add-ons


    Like others have mentioned, I keep IE available for the Windows updater and the rare website designed solely for it that I actually want to peruse - (believe it or not a couple of the government sites are IE only - I shouldn't have been so upset but flamed their webmasters)... FireFox has been my default web browser for a very long time, and I was a die-hard Netscape user before that. Used NCSA Mosaic before Winderz and AOLers got on the net. :))..

    This new version is well worth upgrading to IMO.

    I'm still new to Firefox (only about a month or so that I've used it). Does Firefox have an email program like IE?

    It does and it is here for Firefox 3.0 but they have one for 2.0 as well. It is says everything on what to do in the link I provided:

    http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Change+the+e-mail+program+used+by+Firefox

    You will need to change what to do in the upper left hand part where it says in a box ( Firefox 2 ) but right now it is set up for ( Firefox 3 ). If you have only Firefox 2.0 without the upgrade to Firefox 3.0.

    I hope that can help you out VikingBolt.
