The current (and poor) state of Firefox

Filed under
Moz/FF

Firefox 7 was recently released. That’s right, less than a month after the release of Firefox 6 comes numero 7. But why? Why would one of the most popular browsers out there put out major releases so close together? Could it be the fact that 6 was so bad they wanted to call “do-over!” to try to make things right?

It’s possible. But is it accurate?

The truth of the matter is, I’ve abandoned Firefox for Google Chrome. Firefox has become one of the most bloated and slow browsers available. And release 6 only made things worse.

Rest here
