Scott I. Remick writes: "PC World has put up a nice review of Firefox 0.8. While mostly positive, it does point to a few shortcomings, such as how the extensions site wasn't able to handle the onslaught right after release, which for 2 days kept the reviewer from accessing the site. He also mentions troubles managing extensions, and the issue of many sites only working with IE (which he admits isn't Firefox's fault)."

For the curious, by 0.9 we plan to have a new extension scheme designed to offer more stability for users and flexibility for extension authors. This will interface with an all new extension site hosted by mozilla.org that should benefit from Mozilla's larger bandwidth capabilities for much improved availability. We are working on this right now.
