Hate to say it but, Chrome handles PDF's like a champ. I just don't like that Chrome does not work with Open DNS very good or at all.
Foxit reader w/FF foxit reader plugin for mozilla, works perfectly every time and it is far superior to Adobe Reader in every way as well as having a much smaller foot print and not requiring a running task to eat resources to speed up launch.

Sweet! Going to try it out.

Behind at what, releasing a new browser? There is still firefox 3.6.x and it's a solid release. Has worked for me for years and will continue to work for another few weeks, and even months. I don't get what all the type is with Internet browsers. I mean a browser really should be more or less transparent just showing you the web page. You shouldn't even really have to know that it's there. I can flip flop back and forth between IE, Firefox, Chrome and Opera and never hardly even realize that I am using a different browser.

Behind at releasing a fast browser LOL.

Solid? maybe, but not fast.
Mate you should use chrome, give it a try, its so fast...... however i don't like to have my images all blurry so i use FF.

FF i miss you!! hurry up!

I've used Chrome and I simply don't get into it. It might be a tad bit quicker, but not enough to keep me using it. To me, there is very little difference in speed across all of the browsers these days. FF 4 RC feels a small bit faster than 3.6....but it's certainly not a night and day difference. I'm comfortable with FF, have used it for years and just don't feel inclined to switch. I've loaded IE9, Chrome 10, Opera 11.01 and FF RC. I always end up clicking on FF and using that.

So, I don't really care if other browsers come out more often, I just don't stick with them.

The issue isn't really that Mozilla is being slow at releasing Firefox 4, it's more that they're slow AND making a big hype about it. That's probably what's irritating people. It's definitely irritating me.

Yep.

It's just a browser, not the 2nd coming but from the hype you'd believe that not only is it the 2nd coming, but it's the 2nd coming with bells on.
