Question Mozilla Firebird?

Have any of you tried Mozilla Firebird yet? I downloaded it today and I actually like it.

You could say I've been around.

I use it sometimes and like it a lot. I find it a bit faster then IE with a nice simple interface that is highly customizeable. Although, it doesn't have the compatibility of IE.

As i am viewing it now... i say i like it a lot. The new build that i have is awesome as you get. The thing that i wish it could do is run the updates... then i'd permanently switch over to Mozilla
A+ Core Hardware, Software Certified (May 13 2005)
the new beast...

AMD Athlon XP 3200+ Barton running at 2.16 Ghz.
GeForce MX 4000 (mainly takes the load off the main system)
Creative Labs Audigy 24-bit sound.
Some Case from tigerdirect
512 MB Ultra DDR RAM.
80GB Seagate HDD
LiteOn CD-RW / DVD ROM drive.
currently looking at a litescribe drive at staples, due to its ability to label the CD shortly after being burned.

I use it all the time on my laptop. I actually really like it.. I didn't think it would be much of an improvement over IE, but I really like the look and feel and the fact that it's entirely customizable.

The built-in popup killer is handy, but before I permanently switch, I would say for all webmasters to study cross-browser compatibility.

Oh yeah, and the Windows Update page doesn't work with it.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

I saw very little difference between that and Opera.

And I've been using Opera for years, so it didn't make sence to switch.

I like the tabs and the themes. So much more fun than IE.
