    "Crowned the CLOWNS of the development teams!"

    March 6, 2015  |   By multi-timm

    Version: Mozilla Firefox Portable 36

    Pros

    It's nice that it is available as a portable app.
    Doesn't tie in too intimately with your OS, which gives you control over how much DLLs are being loaded at system startup.

    Cons

    These CLOWNS DID IT AGAIN!
    DELETED ALL BOOKMARKS when it updated!
    You would think that such an organization would have certain work practices, a checklist of what to text before going live.
    But no, they do the same mistakes over and over again.
    When I forgot to back up my bookmarks (which contained lots of product research links for my website and other ongoing research results) and simply accepted another of their far too frequent updates, it overwrote my bookmarks file.
    Who does that anymore?
    It's like this company is run by a bunch of gamer kids who have no concept of reliability and importance of some people's data.

    Summary

    If you're looking for a browser to toy around with, that is not your main browser, firefox is a good pick for that. but don't use it as your main one. they are always adding bells and whistles, that only multiply bugs and increase security update frequency.
    Very annoying the way this company operates.
    Someone should fire the firefox program manager and hire someone who knows what they are doing.

    "Good for when you are cleaning an infected PC"

    November 1, 2012  |   By Jexthoth

    Version: Mozilla Firefox Portable 16.0.2

    Pros

    Lets you work outside of the system to update or reinstall certain programs without necessarily being blocked or bogged down by the virus you are trying to defeat. Leaves no registry trace nor temp mess when you are finished on your system that I can tell.

    Cons

    A little slow, but still unbeatable surfing security.

    Summary

    Not as succeptable to rootkits. Portable.
