    Don't forget that firefox also runs on Linux and OS X.

    I still prefer Safari over Firefox as far as browsers on OS X goes.

    I decided to check out the firefox forums before I upgraded from 0.8 to 0.9. Looks like it was a good thign I did, as it seems 0.9 is verrrrry buggy!

    I've heard that too although I've haven't seen these bugs yet or at least I haven't noticed them. It seems to be able to load pages a bit faster and thats all I've really noticed from this upgrade.

    Firefox 0.9 was just pushed to the gentoo rsync servers today and I quickly grabbed a copy and compiled it. I like the new theme and it does load more quickly than before. I don't know why people are saying this version is bugger, but it seems stable to me.

    Also, for all you web developers out there, there is a really cool extension called web developer that pretty neat. I suggest you try it out.

    FireFox 'seems' more stable for me than safari... I can go to distrowatch without my browser crashing. On the flip side, for me safari is still faster and the keyboard shortcuts are more intuitive... I'll probably stick with Safari on my Mac, and since Firefox just made its way to the rsync servers I'll be updating my Linux PC tonight. Mahalo dduardo for the info.
