I think it was Chrome's idea first. Anyway, I don't mind it in the browsers I don't use every day.

Guess I'll have to see about downloading FF 4.2.1 then.

Oh, so they noticed they didn't fix the "leaks memory like a sieve" issue?

Now using Firefox 7.0.1. Will need more time to see if it freezes just as much as the previous version.

Annoyingly, Google Chrome is getting crappier. They broke the back button for a while (at least in the betas) — seriously? You don't have a regression test for shit like that? — and it's overall getting slower, I think.

And OSX Lion has some serious performance problems too, I'm finding.

My Firefox just updated to 8.0 beta. They are seriously gunning for Chrome's version numbers. Or something.

I'm most impressed with Firefox 7.0.1. It actually not freezing randomly any more.

[up] I'm thinking they are going to catch up with IE.

I've been using FF7 for about ten minutes. I'm not very happy with the internet right now, but that's my ISP, not the browser.

Still using Firefox 3.6.23, considering updating sometime soon though to be honest I am still using Vista so why the rush?

Once I had adequate hardware, Vista was fine for me.

But especially if you're using Vista, you ought to take advantage of FF 7's memory leak fixes.

Yeah, that's kind of what I was waiting for; some serious fixes to the memory issues before I have to figure out everything again.

Damnit, what is it with browsers and getting rid of the normal menu bar?

It's a lot of space that you rarely use. One browser thought to get rid of it, and the others considered it a good idea.

All the most commonly used menu items will have been consolidated in a single menu button, and if you need something else, I know Firefox will temporarily reveal the menu bar if you press Alt.

They should all have the option to permanently show it, if you badly need to see it.

Hm, you should still be able to show the menu bar. Try right clicking and selecting "menu bar". Or it's under the options menu.

It's partly because of the proliferation of wide-but-narrow screens on laptops especially. It's led browser makers to try and get back some of the vertical space taken up by their controls.
