Windows 7: Firefox 3.6 Final Coming Right Up

I don't think people should have to run these programs to keep firefox fast. I am a firefox user that won't switch, but have little reason to belive that firefox should be that slow to start up.

I am not the only one (looks to Steve...you know who you are) but...Firefox 3.7A1 is less buggier...faster...and using addons (with the help of the nightly tester tools) I have never had a better experience...

Unless something miraculous happens with 3.6 FINAL...I am skipping it

This is akin to saying "i'm not going to use a better disk defrag app just cause Windows defrag suxx"...

I'm using FF 3.6 RC1 right now.. Passed the browser benchmark test with a score almost 3x higher than IE8 and 50% higher than 3.5.7

I've been a Firefox user for one reason; Adblock Plus. If Adblock Plus was available, updated, and as functional on Chrome, I'd switch in a heartbeat.

amen to that. The ads are ridiculous on some sites. It ought to be a felony to send anything to someone's computer without their permission
