Firefox 4

Firefox 4 is great so far!

After having used Firefox ever since it was known as Phoenix, I switched over to Google Chrome last summer just to experience something different, because at that point, FF just wasn't impressing me as it once did. I ended up falling in love with Chrome, but over time, I realized that it didn't do a lot of things as well as FF. It might be a faster browser, but if it's more inconvenient to use, that's not exactly a win, either.

I moved back to Firefox once 4 was released in final form, and so far I've been loving it. It's fast for the most part (helps that I am using an SSD, though), stable (hasn't crashed on me even once, or hung up) and I've come to immediately rely on the Sync feature.
