It seems to be another crap browser from Mozilla, anything after 1.4 seems to have sucked to me. To add a little perspective, it is not the most crap thing ever, not in the same league with Window ME for instance, however, it does have issues which make suckage.
Why does it suck:
- It crashes alot
- It seems to have real trouble loading flash content (some sites work, some don’t). You cannot break Flash and expect someone to use your browser.
- It’s a memory guzzling pig
I really don’t get what it brings to the party that IE7 doesn’t already (now) have.
I’m not looking to start a flame war, but I don’t care about Linux and Unix users, they are stuck with Firefox and it is half decent; and when compared to the other browsers non-windoze users have on offer, it must look pretty sweet. But seriously, for Windoze users, compared to IE7 it offers no advantages whatsoever.
It’s a shame because a long time ago it was pretty sweet, and was without a doubt, a better browser than IE5.x and IE6. But since IE7, I really don’t think they can make that claim anymore.
The Web Developer toolbar is the #1 reason I still have it installed on my machine.
