Your favorite browser?
I have been having so many issues with firefox lately, to the point I am about to give up and switch browsers :3

I'm going to try out the current Aurora version. :3

Anyways, I have loved firefox forever.

Whats your favorite browser?

RE: Your favorite browser?
I'm using Opera 11.60 for my browser.

Out of curiosity what are your issues with Firefox?
And which version are you using?

Aurora was okay, but I still think their Nightly builds are a bit more stable. Aurora seems discontinued, they definitely develop more on Nightly now.

RE: Your favorite browser?
Wait, don't builds go

Nightly --> Aurora --> Official Release?

Or are they all 3 different versions of the same thin? :3

Just got nightly x64 (Only reason I got nightly was for x64 lol)

I noticed a 5% or so speed increase xD

What? No they went Aurora ---> Nightly.

Nightly is a higher version than Aurora, but I haven't last checked which is most recent official release as I already have 12.

Aurora is the official release as far as I know. I tried them all except for Firefox 6, and I say i'm quite familiar with Nightly now, and I enjoy it :)

RE: Your favorite browser?
I require every single one of them, even IE 5.0 o.0 lol yea...
I'm using Nightly (12.0a) and have no problems with it at all...

Wehn it comes to discussion "Best Browser", my vote clearly goes to Safari and Opera...

@Auror & nightly
Aurora is more stable then Nightly and etc..
Nightly gets released somewhere around Midnight and Aurora follows in the next morning, usually..

RE: Your favorite browser?
Opera yes, but it's got flash bugs as far as I noticed when I used it, I upgraded to Opera 12, and still no change with those flash bugs. But Safari?!?

You can do much better than Safari :)

Aurora, just becuase it's an older build and has been worked on doesn't mean it's necessarily more stable. Still lots of the memory leaks in their code that I would consider bad for Aurora which was moreso fixed somewhat in Nightly from memory usage differences i've seen.

RE: Your favorite browser?
Okay I might be wrong about Aurora and Nightly, I just know one comes few hours earlier then the other, thus making it "more" stable, not really sure which one...

I didn't notice any Flash problems with Opera as I only visitd youtube with it and I'm in the HTML5 video testing phase, so not really using flash with it..

Safari, imo is the most modern browser, I was saying Safari because of their HTML5 support and not the way it works, etc...
Safari has the most HTML5 support..
