Now I know I’m not the first person to complain about this, I just did a quick Google search and it appears this problem is common. I have noticed that my very good and stable browser Firefox, running on Windows XP, has become less stable as new releases come out. What surprises me is that these new updates that I keep getting asked to install are minor versions – versions supposed to fix existing bugs, not introduce new changes/features with new bugs!
Now the obvious reason is that developers build and test for IE6 as it is the most common browser out there, but I thought Firefox’s strength was that it was open source, standard compliant, and had a large community of developers fixing bugs quickly as they came up, not introducing new ones!
Anyway, that’s my piece for today, leave a comment if you’re also having problems with Firefox!
