    Firefox 9 is going to be released before end of the year AFAIK..
    I dont really mind, I think it's more crying for nothing. Not so big a deal.
    And I'm a web developer and I've noticed no difference in rendering since FF4 so that's all good too.

    Anyway..What you mean swipe?
    You mean back and forward in history?
    Dont know, but use BetterTouchTool and you can do all sorts of cool stuff.
    Three finger swipe back and forward, rotate to change tabs or whatever you want. :cool: Apple will never give you so much choice and freedom to customize and better yet, it's a free app.

    No, but 8.0a2 is out (Aurora) and it seems solid and is quite fast.

    I have been using it for several days with no issues. I like it better than Chrome....

    They're chasing down Chrome, which is at version 14. I think it's freakin' stupid. Shoulda just left the version numbers alone. IMO they're losing credibility.

    I like the old style. It's a pissing contest between companies to have the largest number.. to me if I see a product that's in version 11 or whatever it's most likely going to suck.

    Just keep the large releases to the base numbers.

    Fire Fox 7 works great on my SL, Lion, W7 and W8 installations. The only thing it can't do well that the bloated and slow Safari can do is ad control via extensions. Adblock for Safari is beyond anything I've found for FF. In spite of that I still use FF on my computers.

    The version numbers have nothing to do with a pissing match and everything to do with the whole reason Google developed Chrome in the first place.

    I don't understand why people don't like the rapid release schedule so much. I love it. And Chrome has been doing rapid releases from the beginning.

    Also, I don't know about Firefox 7 or 8, but in Firefox 9 and now 10, you can use the 2 finger back and forward gesture. There's no animation though. I suppose they will add it later.

    And I don't know about you guys but Firefox is so much faster than Chrome. It has really caught up. Chrome is the one that feels bloated and slow now. Trust me, just give Firefox 7 a try. It's awesome. Or you can just download the Beta(Firefox 8). That's even faster. Or the Aurora which is Firefox 9.

    Or if you want to be running the bleeding edge, you can even download the Nightly which is Firefox 10 which is what I'm using right now. It's completely stable even if it's a pre-alpha version.

    They are going to keep the version number. I still see it on mine.

    Firefox 8 is now beta. Firefox 9 is Aurora now and Firefox 10 is nightly. If you're running Aurora and haven't got 9, you will probably get it tomorrow but Firefox 9 is already out for Aurora.

    It's just like how Chrome has a release, beta, dev, and canary channels.

    FYI...

    Tonight when I launched my shiny new FireFox 7, LittleSnitch told me that "FireFox wants to connect to www.appliedsemantics.com on port 80".

    Do I choose to allow?

    I choose "Deny" and FireFox is blank. Still open and running just no page, no tabs. Notta.

    Some collusion between FireFox and Google?

    Why should it be mandatory to allow Applied Semantics access on port 80 of my machine?

    Check it yourself. Strange.
