I meant switching to a different browser? Overall FF is bad, however if there is a better one then it is worth looking at.

Hardly: If you open the Add-ons Manager in Firefox 7, one of the entries on the menu at the left side of the screen is "Extensions".

"Add-ons" covers extension, Appearance, Plug-ins, and if you use Stylish, User Styles.

Judging by the number of replies is it safe to assume that FF gets bloated over time? Perhaps it would be worthwhile to switch a different one. Thoughts?

bigseb,

* Firefox can become bloated when the user decides to use too many addons.

* As others have said keep Firefox updated..

* You might care to check out {Firefox} Nightly too.
It is a testing program... but thus far has proved fast & stable.
I would recommend trying it to see what you think.
