For me and a lot of other people I’ve been talking to, the latest release of Firefox haven’t really been delivering.
Not exactly sure when it started, but Firefox began to get slow, over-think things and now and then crash. I’m using it on a Mac, and the spinning ball of death seem to occur at least once a day. To me, that’s way too often.
What really threw me was that with the 188.8.131.52 release, Firebug stopped working properly (to be more exact, when inspecting elements for the applied CSS). And, as we all know, Firebug is a vital everyday tool for web development.
And it just all makes me wonder: have I and my fellow developers been unlucky or have Firefox started to make releases without properly testing and doing necessary quality assurance?
I love Firefox, and think it’s definitely the best web browser out there: Therefore, I hope they get a grip on things again and continue to develop an otherwise fantastic product.
