    "Not as good as it once was"

    May 2, 2013  |   By Johnny_S

    Pros

    Rendering speed is good and I do like the traditional URL and Search boxes. Although does seem redundant.

    Cons

    For me its slow to load on a core i5 and some web pages seem to pause while loading even though I have a decent broadband connection.

    Summary

    Have not tried Firefox for a while so I gave it a try. Can't say it feels better then the last time. Actually in many ways its slower. I don't really use a browser for more then its default state of web surfing. I don't use extensions, or any add-ons other then typical plug ins. While Firefox does a OK job its nothing I can say is exceptionally better then IE or Chrome. It really comes down to preference and features and for me Firefox does nothing to keep me using it.

    @Jonny_S As much of a fan of Firefox as I am I wouldn't use the browser either if all I wanted was bare bones. It's when you add extensions that Firefox's true beauty shines through.
