I have the updated Firefox 3.0, what's the advantage of 3.5?

bugs fixed, security issues dealt with, i dunno.

one thing though, since they aren't charging you for it it's probably a legitimate update rather than a pay for the same thing you had before.

Never did like Chrome myself. Haven't noticed any major changes to FF with the latest update, other than the + sign on the tab bar to open a new tab window.

I tried Chrome and wasn't impressed. And the new FF is not that much different. It does give you the option of for private browsing where your PC accepts no cookies, nor tracks history. And of course there are less security holes.

I've switched to Firefox a few months ago and I like it much better than IE. I like the ability to customize and it has a far better assortment of personalization add-ons and of course the speed difference is what really sold me up front.

Edit: Oops. Too quick on the submit button. I've never tried Chrome yet. From visiting the HSOforum I thought it looked a lot like a clone to IE.

I second all comments about FFox. Got sick to death of IE8 and its predecessors and finally made the switch a month ago. Would never go back. FFox markedly faster and cleaner, just as friends had been yammering about for last couple years. Go for it!!

Since Chrome came out I haven't been back to Firefox. The only thing Chrome lacks is support for some routers where you configure the settings via the browser. At least that's the only shortfall I've found in my use.

I think the lack of upgrade plug-ins is also another down fall of Chrome. Firefox has a ton, but I have heard/read that is changing soon.

I just switched over from AOL and IE, to Firefox about 2 months ago and really like it. Hard to break the habits of opening the old browsers, but have noticed a positive difference in surfing speed and options.

Welcome to the firefox browser brotherhood! grin

My now brother in law turned me onto it years ago. At first I was not impressed. I kept an eye on it and within a year it was all I was using.

Internet Explorer is so 2007! grin

Yep, you where one of the reasons I switched. You brag it up so much, I figured it was worth a try. I got into Firefox when we where talking about video capture awhile back. Another neat plug-in/feature of Firefox.

You don't need FF to do video capture. wink

Oh, I know!

Just finally figured I would see what all the hype was, switch browsers and decided on Firefox.

    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!
