I like it. I've been using the FireFox browser for a while now
(PC) and it seems to grow on you. The tabs are the biggest
thing. I often have several windows open at the same time
when I'm creating invoices etc. and shipping labels and it is great to
have them all nicely tabbed. You can, of course, do the same
thing by just opening lots of windows with IE, but tabs are cleaner and
easier to deal with.
It automatically blocks pop-ups and tells you when it has done so,
allowing you to override its behavior for specific sites (I needed to
do this for the fedex site).
The only problem I've run into is with Userland Radio - the thing I use
to write this blog. No matter what, even though Firefox is set as
the default browser, and even though the preference file in Radio is
set to use FireFox as the browser - the first time you start Radio - it
asks what browser to use. Well, not exactly, it pops open a box
which is in the Firefox program directory - but still can't figure out
somehow that it (Radio) is supposed to launch FireFox. This is
something spooky with Radio, not with FireFox.
Another thing, it feels more stable. IE isn't bad, but some weird
things have happened with it at times.... weird... you know like it
just won't launch for some reason until you reboot. Why?
Dunno. I haven't had any similar experiences with FireFox so
Anyway, I'm matting & packing prints today. Already made run
out to Fedex to ship two orders that were rushes. Have four or
five more to mat and ship.
