Firefox 3.5, the latest version of the popular open source web browser, was downloaded 5 million times within the first 24 hours after its release. The total number of Firefox downloads could exceed one billion by the end of August.
But I couldn't really tell the difference.
haha...thats because ur internet either blows, or your pc is lacking speed and memory
I could tell that there was a huge difference in speed immediately. I don't see why this is news, yeah its a big number but wouldn't you expect that anyway cos everyone would upgrade immediately right?
I got this and ABP ad blocker, the results are clear. 3.5 and ABP FTW!
Best browser is Firefox
Add block plus (an add-on) is enough to lift FF over any other browser in my mind.
Agreed about AdBlock Plus. That and Adblock Plus: Element Hiding Helper is the reason I loooove FF so much.
chrome is the best and fastest IMO
IE8 is just as fast and has much better function and features.
Chrome is the fastest browser, but Firefox is still king when it comes to features and extendability.
Why dis, IE8 sucks, even the Mart doesn't deny this. It is not as fast as firefox, that's pure bs.
While Firefox is my main browser, it isn't the best. Here are the most recent bench marks. http://www.neowin.net/news/... Now, stop arguing and look at the fact sheet. You can have your own preferences. Edit: I ONLY use Firefox over Safari (I have both. And IE8, but screw that) because of the plethora of really cool add ons and plug ins.
Chrome is favorite. But just LOL @ IE8.
Even im broking the fisrt rule, 'Don't talk about Maxthon': Maxthon 2 is the way to go. You get a lot out the box, adblockers, gestures, tabs, split view with independent tabs, etc... And from version 3 it will run over webkit as well. Oh and before someone tell me is not a browser but a UI over IE trident. ¿Whats gecko for Firefox? Give it a try, 200+ millions of downloads cant be wrong. www.maxthon.com
This has nothing do with ps3 ok? IE8 just sucks in comparison to Firefox and Chrome.
I wouldn't have a problem with IE.. if it didn't crash every other 5 minutes.
AdBlock Plus + NoScript makes browsing so much better.
Don't even try to pull that "this is sony land" BS. That is a myth ms fanboys started when ps3 fans started having a voice here. You had NO problems whatsoever in 2006 and 2007 when all you was were MS fans here trashing sony in every which way. Secondly, this isn't even about Sony. Only insecure whining fanboys (you) bring parties into a discussion they aren't even part of. Lastly, how much is MS paying you? I ask that because you are doing an UNCANNY amount of MS butt kissing. There is no way a person would have such a high degree of fanboyism WITHOUT a paycheck to support it
Yep got it. How many of those were automatic downloads?
This is not counting downloads from mirrors like download.com and filehippo etc.
Not nearly as many as automatically updated versions of IE would be my guess.
3.5 Is so much better than the last version. Last version froze on me a couple thousand times, this one not once yet.
Yes and its hot. Its faster then the last one. Never going back to IE!
Firefox ->>> IE Actually ... any browser ->>> IE It's been like this for years now. Try it yourself, do speed tests with different browsers on a non cached site. IE loses almost every time.
Firefox is awesome and I do notice and appreciate the improvements in this new version.
I tried to download, but it says sorry my system doesn't meet the requirement. hahaaaaaa.... oh, it's my 3 yrs old laptop.
dude, everyone agrees that firefox is better, not just ps3 owners lol.. the only ones saying IE8 is good is people that don't know anything about computers, people that work for Microsoft and people that are up microsoft's .... not even worth finishing! lol
no, not really. i got firefoz and chrome but i prefer IE8 for no ressson. i feel much comfrtoble while using it. i tried Firfox for 3months i didnt notic any diffrence in speed
I use internet explorer because I download firefox 3.5 and guess what it recieves no connection, could be my connection, could be vista.
i like firefox but i'm not into all that customization stuff chrome suits my needs and its mega fast chrome results show its faster than firefox not sure about this new firefox
Just to be ironic, I downloaded it using Internet Explorer. :)
chrome is fastest, firefox is overall better becuase of the things you can do with it plus add-ons. Ie8 is better designed for me somereason but it crashes. opera 9 and 10 beta are fast but are memory hogs also if oyu had 3.5 beta delete it and do a clean install of 3.5, dont just update it to 3.5
Firefox is my main browser but it keeps on crashing for me at odd times.
but I'm been using Safari 4 for some time and I love it!!
