Firefox 2.0 First Impressions

After using Firefox 2.0 for a few days, I have the following to say:
1. It's not much different from 1.6, however, my general feeling is that it runs a bit faster.
2. I'm somehow upset that some of my extensions (add-ons) did not get updated yet, but I know this is not Firefox fault. For example, I run SiteBar server and use the extension to get to all my bookmarks from any computers I use. SiteBar is great, but it is still not working in 2.0, so I'm stuck with regular bookmarks, which is not fun.
3. I have not had any crashes yet, which is a good sign, given the fact that it is version 2.0 (zero, being always buggy in my mind).

So far so good Firefox. I'm sure I'm not going to travel the IE 7.0 road anytime soon... :-)

Firefox 2.0 is here...

My son Patrick turned TWO today!!! Time goes by soooo fast...
We had a nice party for him and a few of his friends at Chuck E. Cheese's yesterday and it was great. I was very surprised how much he participated and understood all that was going on around him. I'll post some pictures on his site http://patrickzone.com soon.

In other news...
I upgraded to Firefox 2.0 on the first computer I use. So far it looks great. Some of the extensions I use do not work right out of the box, but given a few days, it should be resolved. I do not see any obvious bugs yet, but the annoying ones usually show up later. Still looks like the best browser out there, even with IE 7.0 out.

Beta Blogger

I moved my blog to the new Beta Blogger, which has some nice fetures. It appears that posting is much easier, and the new templates look good. I'll run with it and see how things are going, and post any issues.
