i dig the new firefox. doesn't hog resources like chrome does and runs just as if not almost faster.
But they broke the coolest add-on; "Tab Mix Plus" :( and the pinned tabs are too wide and cannot be resized anymore.
True. Hanging out for a couple of the best addons to be available again for the new version.

Webroot.
+1 vote for webroot. It moves all the processing into the cloud so your computer doesn't turn into a snail.

I'm not yet sold on Firefox (used to use it).

If you do use it, make sure you configure it properly to show 'look-alike' domain names properly ...

I used Firefox in the past, too, but think it generated a number of issues.


Use Safari now.
