Editors' Review

No longer a fledgling upstart, Firefox 3 is full-featured, lightning fast, and an able foe for both the big-dog competitor Internet Explorer and competitors nipping at its heels. Firefox's killer add-ons remain strong, and the latest update makes version 3.5 about two times faster than version 3. However, competition is strong and it can no longer be said that Firefox is the fastest browser available.

Several notable improvements in the latest revamp keep Firefox abreast of current browsing tech. Along with Mozilla's new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine that renders Web applications faster on Firefox than ever before, there have also been improvements to the layout engine Gecko for faster page rendering. The new Private Browsing brings a feature to Firefox that competitors have had for a while: the capability to turn off cookie and history logs. Users also have more granular control over cookies, history, and bookmarks in version 3.5 via the redone Clear Recent History option under Tools. Geolocation courtesy of Google has been activated by default in Firefox, so that generic searches such as "city hall" will come closer to pegging the government offices nearest you.

Web developers should be excited about expanded support for HTML5 local storage, downloadable fonts, and native support for OGG-formatted embedded video. ICC profiles, SVG transforms, CSS media queries, native JSON support, and Web worker threads also get lots of love from v3.5. There's no doubt that Firefox 3.5 is a must-have, but it's an update that's more about keeping the browser current rather that blazing new trails.

"Great for maintaining one profile across many devices"

March 22, 2010  |  By mong00se2020

 |  Version: Firefox Portable 3.6

Pros

Easy to install, takes up no space on your device, but most of all, allows you to have one profile for all your devices.

Cons

There aren't any.

Summary

Perfect for me. I use a netbook but sometimes a desktop as well, and this is just the thing to conserve space on my netbook while still having all my bookmarks, passwords (I know I shouldn't store them in my profile...), and (yes!) addons carry over from one computer to the other.

"Works exactly how it's supposed to"

February 27, 2010  |  By jofssie

 |  Version: Firefox Portable 3.6

Pros

Complete profile integrity - even when using multiple FF portables on the same computer. Zero crashes. Fast.

Cons

Nothing negative encountered so far. The portable version is every bit as good as the full version.

Summary

Great program which makes multi-profile use of Firefox very easy indeed. This is an excellent solution to shared computers - now easier than ever for each person to keep bookmarks, passwords and other personal settings separate.
