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 Firefox 3.6 also isolates out-of-date plug-ins so they do not become a security risk.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.

"love orca more than firefox"

February 28, 2011  |  By jude00

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.6.13

Pros

After trying FF, IE, Opera, Chrome, Maxthon, Safari, and others, I found Orca Browser to be best in terms of speed, startup. I think every FF lover should give Orca a try.....since it is using the same web engine

Cons

too slow ..

"One of the Best Browsers available ."

February 24, 2011  |  By TonyBeGoode

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.6.13

Pros

Faster than IE with a comfortable feel. Highly customizable with a huge gallery of add-ons. Traditional feel may be the deal clincher when compared with, say, chromium-based browsers which can feel cold.

Cons

Occasional stability problems; easy to get carried away with add-ons; could be faster.

Summary

Browsers are a lot like cars to me, and if Internet Explorer is the old pickup truck parked in the driveway, then Firefox is a Honda Accord with a lot of after-market mods. Even though my default browser is a google chrome (faster for downloads - it's like a European sportscar) the Firefox is what I use for casual browsing ; there's something about the feel of it that's comfortable and familiar. There's no excuse for being stuck with an Internet Explorer (never liked it) anymore.

"Give It A F++"

February 23, 2011  |  By marlorcomp

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.6.13

Pros

Use to be a great browser until they came out with 3.0. Version 2.0 was great!

Cons

Version 3.0 crashes all the time trying to open or while surfing the web.

Summary

Used Firefox for over 6 years and never had a problem until they released version 3.0. As the newer releases came out it just kept getting worst. With version 3.6 had to remove it completely due to crashing all the time upon start up. Went with Google Chrome and am very happy with it - Faster and Stable!
