Default I've jumped ship

I've jumped ship...

After having Firefox 3.6 for a week, from the previous version, pages weren't loading properly, and running a lot slower.

Decided to jump to Google Chrome which automatically grabs settings/passwords, etc from Firefox, and what a difference!

I'm sorry Mozilla, but you've lost a user, if 3.6 is anything to go by, for future releases

Yeah, and it turns out, Chrome isn't all that great for me, as the search bar doesn't have a scroll button to view what else you've been on. You have to mess around to get to it.

Reverting!

Can't seem to download a previous version... hmm

Firefox is more homely for me anyway (switches it back on), haha

Firefox has been kinda slow, I tried Chrome and didn't really notice anything. I don't like how the downloads work on it.

If you are on 3.6 and are noticing issues, like I did, download this version that Neodude112320 stated, 3.5.7:

Man...I switched to Chrome and I haven't been able to come back to FF. Chrome has a more clean look.

It does look cleaner and more user friendly, I like how you can change the theme.

I went
IE
FF
CHROME
FF (+CHROME)

Chrome's web inspector is a big help but FF's add ons help in web design too, (color picker, pixel ruler etc.). I'm on 3.6 and haven't had any crash problems (touch wood)
