Editors' Review

No longer a fledgling upstart, Firefox is the gold standard of alternatives to the still-dominant Internet Explorer. Firefox 3.6 is full-featured, lightning fast, and secure. Its killer selection of add-ons remains strong, with built-in support for the next generation of themes, called Personas, plus the latest update makes version 3.6 about 20 percent faster than version 3.5. 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. In addition to the aforementioned improvements made to the TraceMonkey JavaScript engine so that it renders Web applications faster, there have also been other significant under-the-hood changes. These include: blocking third-party software from encroaching on Firefox's file system turf to increase stability; support for the Web Open Font Format, which means many non-English browser users should have a faster time loading Web pages with downloadable fonts; and support for the File interface, which can help with tasks such as uploading multiple photos and is part of the draft HTML5-standard effort. HTML5 support debuted in Firefox 3.5. Another deeper change to the browser is that it is now running scripts asynchronously, which can help to load a Web page faster by putting off some work until the high-priority chores are complete. Firefox 3.6 also isolates out-of-date plug-ins so they do not become a security risk.

Unlike Firefox 3.5, which was more about keeping the browser current rather than blazing new trails, Firefox 3.6 is once again on the warpath. Upgrading is highly recommended.

"Too cumbersome. Messy, cluttered interface. Horrible."

September 06, 2010  |  By JamesonJameson

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.6.8

Pros

It is nasty on Windows and on a Mac but surprisingly sweet on Ubuntu. Not that one would want it on Ubuntu, but it is bearable.

Cons

Buttons and toolbars all over the ******* place. Slow. Very slow. Ugly. Not customisable in ways that matter to me.

Summary

Sometimes being able to have a bit of everything leaves one feeling bloated and rather sickly.

"Good but this updated version has some problems-"

September 03, 2010  |  By andreaborman

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.6.8

Pros

Good browser on its good days when it is working.

Cons

This version 368 seems to crash a lot.

Summary

The previous versions of Firefox last recent one Firefox 365 worked fine but Firefox 367 and now 368 has crashed on occasions. Flock is faster and more reliable than Firefox,Firefox is all right but does slow and crash on occasions. From what I have read Firefox is designed to work with all operating systems which could be the problem. and it seems other users have had the same problems I have had with this version of Firefox. Windows computer users including Windows 7 PC users might like to thing about switching to Pale Moon browser a new open source version of Firefox,that is made for Windows only operating systems not Mac pcs. I have now uninstalled Firefox and am using Pale Moon browser and it is much quicker and faster than the current Firefox. Pale Moon is not made by Mozilla but has the same code so works exactly the same as Firefox without the problems. but Mozilla Flock is Faster and more reliable than Firefox if you are choosing which Mozilla browser to user.

"~ OvEr RATED!!!"

September 02, 2010  |  By shakethebabyass

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.6.8

Pros

* Compatible.

Cons

* SLOW.
* CRASHES ALL THE TIME!!

Summary

Firefox is so over rated. Who needs the silly add ons that you can get with Opera and Chrome... They just slow you down and with Firefox you do not need another thing to slow you down. You are already going at snail speed.

OPERA ALL THE WAY!
