You know another Firefox 5 feature? It breaks required Addons.
If the rapid update process continues, Firefox will lose it's only reason for being - addons.
If addon writers like Evernote and Logmein can't keep up with the rapid release cycle, Mozilla might as well call it quits.
No one uses Firefox for the core browser - it's only the wide variety of useful addon's that turn Firefox into a useful application.

That's not entirely true.
I use Firefox as is. My son does the same. I know my sister uses it stand-alone as well. I also know of friends that only use it without any add-on.
In my opinion using an add-on creates the possibility of security hole in my system, so I avoid third party anything as much as possible.
That said, in my testing, I've found version five to be decent so far.
Keep your stick on the ice...
Going forward, Tux Machines does not have ads. Instead it relies on readers' support and is run as a public service.
