It is a little more stable, but it is getting to be a large program and it does take a little while to load, but it has some good features, however, it automatically downloads some add-ons and has installed them, one I am trying to delete, as it is memory hungry, and when you are net surfing and it decides to down load an app. The weakness of most software companies is that they dont really support third party plug ins very well. I just tried Firefox's newest version and it was ridiculous.
it slows pages you want to look at.#.5 was better overall, or the latest stable version is quicker. Often majorly important functionality missing from the browser ends up being provided by someone working in their backroom who may not have the time or inclination to update it for free. It's not Mozilla's fault some Add-ons stop functioning after updating versions of FF. Unless I find a better browser, I plan to stick with FF products. Then the Roboform password thing did not respond well. Every page I logged into I got a script not responding error and it wasn't only once but continuous and I had to keep clicking on stop script before it would even deign to respond and even then it was still generating the script not responding error.

That means the product that I loved so much is gonna go to sh*t!! :)I use a dial up & my windows XP2 internet explorer was slow loading pages, replaced with Firefox V 1.5, wow...
This is exactly why i moved to firefox/mozilla because they had no affiliation with MS unless i missed an article. what a difference, it loads webpages fast so I'm very pleased....theres nothing fast about dial up lol...
The history of the name Mozilla goes all the way back to the internal codename for the original 1994 Netscape Navigator browser, with the name meaning "Mosaic killer" and aiming to some similarity with the building-crushing Godzilla, as the company's goal was to displace NCSA Mosaic as the world's number one web browser.
