Firefox... oooh shiny
This evening I had three crashes with Mozilla Firebird 0.7.1 on OSX in the span of two hours. That gets annoying fast. I ran the Software Update and picked up the latest Safari. I still hate it. It's improved and I still irrationally hate it. Hoping I might get lucky, I went to the Mozilla site and oooooh, shiny new release of Firefox (formerly Firebird, formerly Phoenix, whatever the Mozilla browser based on the Gecko engine is called today). What the hell, I said to myself, and installed it. Nice. No crashing. Try a couple of sites that were tying Firebird in knots, render okay. All my favorite extensions still work. Really nice. I'll give it another day or two but so far it looks like an improvement.
