Glad to hear that they will be releasing useful and noticeable improvements.

Really wasn't impressed by FF4, and with the announcement that there was very little change with FF5, decided to give Chrome a shot... best decision I made.

I was really reluctant to switch to Chrome, but after seeing that most of the extensions I use in Firefox are available for Chrome I decided to give it a go. I've also noticed Chrome is a lot quicker and more responsive than FF.

Neh...will stick to Opera. Best browser for me...and was very surprized last night when I saw it handles Sars Efiling very well on Linux Mint.

Chrome is fast and love the simplistic look. No one can beat it in that regard.

I really hope that 6 & 7 will add value. For me there was no noticeable difference between 4 & 5.

Opera is NR1! Firefox must rather work on 1 complete version instead of 2\3 different ones.

I see they`re into number crunching now.
What a waste if you ask me, to me it appears they`re no longer
doing the 4.1.1, 4.1.2 but skipping to v5, v6, v7. Stoopid if you ask me :wtf:
Is this some desperate attempt to get market share or what am I missing...

I've moved over to Chrome myself, but still keep old faithful (Firefox) around for those 'just in case' scenarios. The memory optimisation interests me. Now if they could just get it to start up as fast as Chrome. :)

Wonder if Microsoft has shares in Mozilla? That would explain the new major release with very little change under the hood!

Yep same here - been a firefox man for years! Had all of the big four browsers on my pc but never used any other than firefox except for development. But then I decided to give Chrome a go due to the 2 sec start up time and cannot switch back to Firefox. All my extensions except for videodownloadhelper are there. Will stick with Chrome until Firefox get their startup times to equate.
