  10. I wont be bothering to update it for about ohhhhh 6 months at least like the rest of the pathetic updates that make things worse.You know if its not broke, don�t try to fix it.

  11. If looks about this update rate, I bet that the version 5 will come soon.

  12. Firefox 3.x was outdated in terms of running speed with Flash and Javascript. Firefox 4 is improving here and also in the UI. Now why they’re rushing with Firefox 5 kinda beats me. They may have something op their sleeve. Perhaps some new internet navigation standards?
