1) Right-click on the IE shortcut
2) Choose Properties
3) In the Run field (dropdown box, under Shortcut Key), choose Maximized.

That or when Chrome gets extensions into the stable builds the world will bow to Chrome.

Already extension support in the dev builds.

There's no way firefox's javascript engine or html 5 canvas rendering speed can compete with chome's

In a web 2.0 world this is what matters

So the browser wars are still alive and boring people to death

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the Acid3 test yet...

I'm may have misread your post when I answered before, so, just to cover the bases:
If you mean that the icons that are 'pinned' to the taskbar, here, they will open maximised only if they are maximised the last time I closed them.

I'm currently using Firfox 3.5.3 as well and haven't really had the issues the OP mentioned. I'll admit to not having watched many videos, but I haven't experienced any crashes and I don't really see any slowness, but maybe it's just me.

Completely agree with Madidus; used to love Firefox back in the day but in the last few months its hogged a lot of memory and crashed on me a number of times. I dont even use extensions. I got fed up and went to Chrome and wow, I'm loving it! Never had a crash, love the quick performance and simple look.

For reference I just ran AcidTest3 on the three browsers that are installed on this work laptop. See pics for results

i figured i would test minefield tomorrow. all ready downloaded it.
I keep multiple browsers installed, because I have never found a browser that is perfect for all situations. Opera 10 is my primary, but when I went to find Firefox Minefield, I found Firefox Shiretoko instead. I haven't used it any except for once or twice, but it does seem alot faster than Minefield.

New Browser for Windows 10
Microsoft could launch a completely new browser with Windows 10 | VentureBeat | Business | by Harrison Weber A lot of people think IE is slow. To me, the older the computer, the slower IE is. I am wondering if this new browser will be available for all versions of Windows. What do y'all think?
