FireFox 2.0 out!

Postby Caladus » Thu Oct 26, 2006 9:11 am

Not sure how many of you are using FF, but just in case...

You can grab the latest version <a href='http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/' target='_blank'><span style='color:orange'>HERE</span></a>!

Then grab the add-ons you want <a href='https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/recommended/' target='_blank'><span style='color:orange'>HERE</span></a>!

Then if you like, go over to Lifehacker.com to find some tweaks for it...click <a href='http://www.lifehacker.com/software/firefox-2/geek-to-live-top-firefox-2-config-tweaks-209941.php' target='_blank'><span style='color:orange'>HERE</span></a>!

Installed it Tuesday evening. No probs so far, other than some of my favorite add-ons not being updated to be compatible with 2.0 yet. Haven't tried the tweaks yet, but I sure will tonight when I get home. B)

let me know how you like it, becuase I'm perfectly fine with the firefox I've got right now. if it's substantially better I'll consider it.

Finally got around to applying the tweaks from lifehacker.com last night. Good schtuff, applied the session restore, set the prefetch to false, and set the memory usage down to 15000 from 50000! Seems to load up a bit quicker now!
The main tweak I was after was the session restore. I've got 5 tabs that I have open all the time so it's nice to be able to close my browser and when I reopen it open all five tabs/sites again.
