Has anyone tried using FireFox 2.0?
I seriously have issues with it.
It's slow, it hangs...
and the first time I lost all my bookmarks, until I figured out what
del.icio.us was doing behind my back...
and the bookmarks toolbar...where is it? I don't want my del.icio.us
links there...I want all the frequently accessed stuff!
Much less in love,
S

Sunandini,

I've been using the new version for a day or so now and I can report that my
experience has been very different to yours. I've seen _improvements_ in the
speed of page rendering and the bookmarks etc are right where I left them.
It hasn't crashed on my at all; it hasn't slowed down my computer
perceptibly.

I regularly have Firefox open for hours at a time with multiple tabs running
(email, calendar, timesheeting apps, WIP & dev sites etc), so plenty of
opportunity for memory leaks and gradual performance issues to show up, but
I've seen nothing but rock-solid, speedy performance.

Best Regards,

Steve Baty
