Topic: Firefox impressions...
finally, I took the time to install firefox in a test machine and see what the fuss was all about
I've never been a fan of NS based navigators, and I always felt that it shouldn't be that hard for all vendors to adapt to the standards, and when necessary create new standards and adopt them immediately, so it pisses me off that some js still won't work correctly due to different DOMs and such trivialities.
That said, I must state I'm fairly impressed with this bugger. I will reconsider it when it gets out of beta/pre state, cause many features that I need aren't yet too well (if at all) implemented. But it's simply better than MSIE, can't discuss that.
I can't believe though that there's no 'history' easily accessible. That and the fact that I'm superlazy and don't want to retype all my passwords to all the sites I'm registered in, unless that's a necessary evil, along with some inconsistencies in the handling of security certificates, make me decide to stay with IE, but I will certainly stay tuned, and will not uninstall it from my system (which is really much more of a praise as it might seem).
Just thought I'd let all those firefox fans that hang around know, I loved the tab thing and it's ease of use, also the JS debug console and several other enhancements that I hadn't even dreamed of before
Very very very promising!
