    Firefox 1.5

    Yum. I finally made the switch from 1.0.7 -- only reason I'd balked was due to extensions incompatible with the new version. Not enough to hold me back though. Such a nice browser.

    Yes, the new version of Gecko is nice isn't it?

    Still mainly using 1.0.7 here. I do have 1.5 installed separately. I'll give it some more time to see if the themes and extentions I use that havent been upgraded are before I completely switch over.

    Wow, and I downloaded 1.07 on Monday. Talk about bad timing.

    Re: Firefox 1.5

    Very fast and so far, very stable. A few extensions had to be reinstalled.

    Only complaint to date is The Science Channel page which used to load and run without a glitch now loads partially and hangs. Had to go to the dreaded IE for a few seconds to read something on the TSC page that Firefox 1.5 wouldn't show. Then it was time for a special non-scheduled run of antispyware and antivirus software to see what I had picked up. Thanks, IE for the 5 new spyware installations that I had to remove!.
