FireFox 20.0 Released!
I've been waiting for this to be released to the release channel for a while now. I've seen 20.0 since the beta/alpha/dev release, and I thought it was pretty awesome. The new downloads manager is much better, and everything seems at least 150% smoother in my opinion since version 19.0.2...

RE: FireFox 20.0 Released!
Firefox got really buggy and slow for me a while back so I switched to Chrome. Since I don't use it often, it's hard to tell how much is different in this release.

So far I've been using it for a good 15 minutes or so and it's seemed fine.

Same. I got a lot of freezing/crashing/slow start-up times for the program. :\

RE: FireFox 20.0 Released!
I like chrome but stopped using it. For me it just seems that google has access to yet another way of tracking what one is doing with the browser.

I'm using Opera as alternative. Noticed that many of the things we see today in Chrome come in fact from Opera as a design inspiration. Also, Opera has a nice key manager built-in and a turbo mode that is really great on slower web connections. This is actually a great feature on the opera android web browser to speed up page loads over 3G connections.

Well, 'nough said about other browsers from me. Will now try out version 20 of FF.. :)

EXACTLY!! -- And they do abuse this in my opinion based on what I have been hearing from google chrome... Good browser, but not very good if you want privacy. I remember a link that I think you, or florin, posted about chrome... It was a site that contained reasons for why one should not be using google chrome and for all of the tracking that they do.

I have tried SRware Iron and Chromium as alternatives, but they don't seem very stable to me. I've encountered lots of bugs with both unfortunately...

Opera is a good browser though. It's stayed a little in the shadows though in my opinion and that's where they are going wrong I believe. The thing I like about opera is the turbo and the tab grouping if you drag a tab over another. I am a tab-user, so with many tabs open it's very nice to have that feature.

Nuno Brito, you won't be disappointed with FF 20.0 though

cheers

Firefox 3 was good, but you are now susceptible to lots of security holes. I would upgrade if I were you lol.

Copy is not working? Tab, or the arrow keys? Sounds like a keyboard issue to me. What version do you have? It's not firefox as it all works for me. This is something else for the issue that you are experiencing.
