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.

Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
