Firefox 3 Beta 1 Released!

Unread postAuthor: PCGUY » Tue Nov 20, 2007 8:33 pm

Click here for downloads... (Linux, Mac, and Windowz!)

http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html

It's great to beta test if you wish, in this version they have upgraded many things under the hood... such as an updated rendering engine for web pages. Due to the ammount of changes with Firefox, I would like reports about SpudFiles problems on it (since any beta like this is bound to have issues).

The first thing I can notice is that the moderator control buttons are severely mis-aligned.

Yes, I am the guy that owns & operates SpudFiles (along with our extremely helpful moderators).

While you wait for it to download, don't forget to repent.

Now you're asking a bit too much

I already have it installed, I just don't use it.
Do you really think I would spend my life and life savings for that matter arguing against FireFox too not even had tried it :wink:

It doesn't/didn't have a new tab button next to the other tabs like IE, I can't find anything on it(they just want to be so different nothing is where it should be)

The menu looks like it's from 1995 and lacks colour, graphic detail, standingout-ness :P

You can customize your tool bars. I have a new tab button right next to my little house. The hotkeys are faster though, so I use them more often.

I doubt you know your way around a space shuttle... that doesn't make it useless. You need to familiarize yourself with it.

If you are the type that enjoys a browser with flare and attitude perhaps you should download one of the many skins available for Firefox.

Also, out of respect, I will not point out the following contradiction:

Bit of paraphrasing going on there, I meant firefox changes some minor stuff so people don't relate it to IE, just like placement of buttons etc. I meant the skin lacked anything wonderful (also half the icons for webpages don't show the proper icon)

I'm sure FF is better then IE, i'm just more comfortable with IE, I can download it straight away and feel comfortable and not like I need to get a new skin for it etc.

Their logo is better, but that's the only reason I would pick it over IE, I don't really have the need for little extra things that I never would use, IE does what I want it to.
