    "Used To Be Good; Now It's Unstable..."

    October 30, 2011  |   By unc2000

    Pros

    -A pretty safe browser
    -Good UI
    -Loads pages relatively quickly

    Cons

    -It has gotten VERY unstable. Looking for another update to fix this.
    -Takes a while to start the program
    -Loads some webpages incorrectly...

    Summary

    Firefox used to be so good and fast. Now it's been killed. Ever since the random updates were suddenly churned out by Mozilla, it has gotten slower and slower, works weirdly with Adobe Flash on some webpages, and crashes regularly.

    However, that being said, it still is VERY Safe and deserves merit in that area.

    The Bottom Line:

    If you have Firefox, DON'T UPDATE IT! If you are wanting to download it, be patient. Hopefully an Update will come up soon, making it more stable.
