    Default Firefox 4 Released



    Firefox 4 is officially released.

    Speed Sucks


    1.Speed sucks Opera is still better when bandwith is squeezed.And ff4 took quite some in response.


    2.HTML 5 support added
    Natve support works well in youtube.




    3.Most add ons still doesn't work right on with FF4 official.
    One of the biggest reason people chose Firefox for.


    4.Interface is half stolen from chrome and opera.But windows 7 intergration has improved than 3.6.Added app tab and switch to tab.


    5.Firefox failed acid 3 test in the first hand

    Thumbs down Disappointed

    I am Dissapointed in Firefox 4. The startup time is much more as compared to chrome or IE9 and both of them are faster too. You can also check the Microsoft Fistank test for the browser. It literally sucks in displaying dynamic content

    Many Indian web sites, are programmed to display/work
    correctly with IE only and you cannot avoid it.
    Because of FF and Chrome/
    IE browser has been forced to upgrade and still commands approx 50% of market share.
    2.
    With Firefox you can switch to IE and back to FF.
    Some users prefer it for the addons, and to reduce the data download. I avoid at least 30 to 40% download to utilise my quota usefully. ( if you have Unlimited plan also these add ons are useful )

    3.
    Most of us are not qualified/ competent to do Bench mark tests,on browsers etc and individual opinions with different setups do not give any conclusive results.

    Very true. What's more, I use the browser that I'm comfortable with, and point-zero-zero-zero-something to load a page isn't going to change my mind. It's good for manufacturer's hype and media page filling only.

    Startup time does matter to me, and seems to be a Windows problem. It is one of the things that I found refreshing after changing to Ubuntu: FF starts fast.

    I read that Mozilla are taking note of which addons destroy performance. Apparently they've published a list of the worst.

    I am now using Firefox 4. My usage is moderate, I think. So, the loading still acceptable :-)
