It's going to make it damn difficult to roll back if there is a problem with an update....

-uninstalls firefox- I've been having consistent problems with them for a while now, and this is about where I draw the line on stupidity.

At one point I was running a ramdisk with FF portable just to get it off the dime when the disk is busy. With Chromium all I have to do is start with a blank page. Even if the disk is busy it snaps up. No reason to use FF as anything but a backup now. About the only AddOn I haven't found a Chromium version is SyncPlaces. If someone comes up with a similar extension for Chromium that uses my own ftp site then I may just scrub FF altogether.

I stopped using Firefox awhile ago, and these rapid releases make me think they aren't focuses on just making a good browsers anymore. Looks like Chrome will be my second browser.

What's amazingly stupid is they classify it as a bug.

On another site a person reported that he was having trouble with FF6 not loading pages and had to stop and reload the page. He finally gave up and went back to FF5. I have noticed that same problem at times on FF5 but I thought it was just me. If it gets worse in FF6 I will drop it for sure. Hope Mozilla gets their act together soon.

Has the feel of it.

I can understand Firefoxs angle - not a fan and the choice to essentially hide the version is questionable, but I can understand it.

This is what Microsoft does better with product releases: they don't release new versions of their software every six months. That gives people plenty of time to get cozy with the software, love it, and then get bored and upgrade to the next version in three years....unless if you're weird.
