All,


I just downloaded my copy of Lion. However, before I start my migration I am worried if my current Office 2011, Chrome, Firefox will work in the new LION IS X. I am an SEO and most of my work is done through browsers and that is my tool for trade. If Office 2011, Chrome and Firefox doesnt work on it, it makes no sense for me to migrate right now

Any solutions for this?

well since lion is all 64bit.

you can runt he programs, go onto activity monitor, there you can check if they are 64 bit, if they are, they should run just fine. Go do that, and then upgrade safely :cool:

You are, but while I haven't tested these apps on Lion (except for Firefox 3.6), they should run. I have lots of 32-bit apps on Lion and they run.

Wat about Microsofy Office 2011 for Mac? If that works, I am ready to roll :)

awesome. I think I am ready to go for it. Do you have any idea how long does it take to install it. If it takes too long I dont want to do on my company;s time. I already downloaded the 4 gig file.

Looks like lotChrome is working in Lion but it doesnt take the advantage of it s latest UI. DO you think its a wise decision to wait for a while?
