I don’t use Firefox per say, but I do use a handful of Firefox-based browsers. It’ll probably be a while before I am able to play with this fast Firefox. I hope my browsers get updated soon!

I occasionally try to go back to FireFox, but every time I try it, it seems they’ve blocked the use of another ad-on feature I really liked. If they would allow the use of so-called “heavy-weight” themes, like Foxscape or Orthodox and some add-ons like Get Mail Plus, I’d go back in a heartbeat. It used to be one of the few browsers that allowed customization to a great extent, but now it’s just another also-ran browser with no real advantage to using it. Â Â
