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)."


#7 Yeah, Firefox is better than Mozilla 1.6.

Not all my IE bookmarks would go into Mozilla 1.6 after I installed it. Also, it's Print Preview feature would sometimes, instead of opening in a seperate window, display its contents into the main browser window, forcing me to close the browser & restart it just to get it working again. I've never had this problem with Firefox 0.8 at all ... which is weird. Technically, it's still an "experimental" program. Odd how, even in that state, it still kicks other browser's asses. Even Mozilla 1.6's.

BTW: The review was just fine to me.
