    IE haters rejoice!

    As a side note, the folks at Lifehacker (a cool site) rely on some of the same lingo we do:

    So how long before Netscape releases an updated browser, since they rely on both the Firefox and IE platforms?

    Attention Boom and busdriver: The new version has built-in spellcheck. [/nonetoosubtlehint]

    And the interface is subtly improved, while overall it seems to be less of a RAM hog than version 1.X was.

    on a semi-related note, my new favorite thing is the firefox extension called "StumbleUpon" -- it gives you a random page (you select the categories you want) when you click a button at the top of the browser. great for when you're bored. and i've found some pretty interesting stuff that way.

    The only part I don't like about his version is that the colorful-tabs extension doesn't work.

    Never had that. Did have the very useful extension which put close boxes on each individual tab, which the FF development team co-opted.

    Is anybody else finding that 2.0 is locking up waaaaayyy more than 1.5 ever did?

    Nearly every time I load up SportsJournalists.com it will eventually freeze on me.

    Very disappointing.

    Wow ... haven't experienced that yet... have you sent an e-mail to the Mozilla folks?

    Numerous e-mails. If this keeps up I'm going to try and backtrack to 1.5.

    Stretch: This is what I was talking about when I posted before that SportsJournalists.com was locking up on me pretty much every time I went to my PMs. Now, it does it on random pages. About every five pages I have to quit firefox and restart it.

    I got 2.0 upon reading this thread and went back to 1.5 within the hour after three freeze-ups.
