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.

Lenovo G50 & CentOS 7.2 MATE - Fairly solid

Is there a perfect track record for any which distro? No. Do any two desktop environments ever behave the same? No. Is there anything really good and cool about the MATE offering? Yes, definitely. It's not the finest, but it's definitely quite all right. You do get very decent hardware support, adequate battery life and good performance, smartphone and media support is top notch, and your applications will all run happily. On the other hand, you will struggle with Samba and Bluetooth, and there are some odd issues here and there. I think the Gnome and Xfce offerings are better, but MATE is not to be dissed as a useless relic. Far from it, this is definitely an option you ought to consider if you're into less-than-mainstream desktops, and you happen to like CentOS. To sum it all up, another goodie in the growing arsenal of CentOS fun facts. Enjoy. Read more
