    "As an early beta test bed, you can't be too critical"

    November 30, 2012  |   By jkirk1626

    Pros

    Frequently updated for a change. In the bad old days that were as recent as 2010, FireFox didn't update itself often. They'd compile a huge list of fixes, but not issue the corrections for months in one massive dump. Now they've improved with lots of little improvements lots of times. Expect to see available updates several times a day.

    Cons

    These cons only apply to someone contemplating using this version as a daily driver; an early beta or alpha anything isn't a good choice for a functional do-real-work option. This is cutting edge see-if-this-works / what-will-this-do code for the curious. Using this with that in mind isn't a con.

    Summary

    This applies to Windows 8.

    Gmail won't load. The progress will almost complete, but will cease making progress and spin incessantly, never loading.

    Same with trying to login to CNET. It will pull down the "login to CNET" options, but not display the option to actually login with your CNET creds.
