    It's a VERY nice update, but I discovered a "little" drawback that my Flash player doesn't work as smoothly as it used to and that's mildly put. Hopefully, they will release an update soon. I still cannot get my head around such a big company like Adobe being unable to make a simple FLV player work normally. It's kinda unbelievable?! I use Media Player Classic for playing video files, and it can play so many formats without any problems, and they ADOBE cannot make Flash player that has to deal with only a handful of video formats work?! Makes you wonder if corporate software is worth it at all.

    I was amazed that they now seem to be doing regional localisations, but then realised it was Maithili on the release notes, not MaltHill.

    I think it's too late for Firefox, I left it a few years back when it kept getting memory leaks with Flash plugin; Chrome never had that issue.

    I still like Firefox a lot, the awesome bar is a good feature that Chrome lacks.

    Still use it as my main browser. Seeing the same Flash issues, but my word, it's Flash. The sooner the web dumps this pile of rubbish the better.

    I like Chrome too, I just find FF a better founded experience with the plugins I use.

    Nice update. It's now running nearly as well as Waterfox, which is what I use.

    I started using FF again after (was it) version 12? when it could get a page up on the screen faster than Chrome again. If Chrome gets faster, then I will swap back. I possess no loyalty.

    Been using this for a week or so now. You can really notice the performance increase. Very fast and responsive
