Nice to see ikey start his own project, he is a very bright and talented individual and I look forward to seeing what he creates. I saw a chat client ikey had made himself, he is extremely talented and I really look forward to seeing ikey's success with his project.

Anyone update to the new Firefox? Quite a bit more snap to it, I'm surprised. It's becoming competition with Chrome, maybe with the new cycle it'll compete with Midori too!

I have been using the next release of Firefox-5.0

I really like it ... no problems, all the same extensions and add-ons work ... and I find it faster than FF-4 or Chromium.

I've found the same to be true. Firefox 5 is blazing!

Now, where's the coffee?

FF 3.6.18 just came through on the Mint Updates for me. I'm using Mint 10 as the proprietary Nvidia drivers crashed 11. I had also made some changes to the sound drivers in Mint 10 so it would work with Skype, so I have 10 working real well. I guess I could DL FF 5 directly, if it is an improvement.


I just realised it came through on my Xubuntu 11 install. Yes, it is nice!
