I like Firefox, but it crashes too much on my machine
Authored by: godo on Oct 18, '04 12:17:48AM

I used to use Mozilla with Tabbrowser Extensions (which slowed down and destabilized Mozilla). Then Firefox came along, so I gave up Moz/TE for the speed and better stability. Firefox's ability to block images from specified servers seemed to make it superior to Safari until I learned that ads can be blocked in basically all browsers with the right userContent.css file. Now the choice is between Firefox and Safari. Firefox has Type Ahead Find (which I adore), but it seems more crash-prone since version ~0.8. It often crashes under multiple tabs when dialog boxes come up. So now I mostly use the somewhat stabler Safari, though I usually run Gmail in Firefox.
