The only Aurora in FF that I've seen is 32 bit, FF 64 bit is still Nightly and the only good one is 12.0a1...

I'm using version 17.0.a2(2012-09-18)

You have to have registered to be on their update channel to get the latest version. It is 64 bit.

I think Google Chrome is the most simple browser to use, not too complicated...

Yes and despite the massive TV advert campaign over here at the moment for IE9, I'm sticking with Chrome.

FF Aurora is still being developed and I am a beta tester. You take it as you find it, but it works for me. Stick to IE8 until they iron out the bugs.

Still using Seamonkey 2.12.1 with it's built in email client.
And FF 15.0.1 for my Utopia minicities visiting.

Only problem I have noticed is since the last update on both, memory leakage has become a bit worse. I have to close down and relaunch both or memory usage just keeps going up and up until things start to crawl.

Only time I ever use Exploder is when loading Windows from scratch and it's the only browser there to get started with.


Cats.....what more does one need?

Have made friends in this life.

I'll stick to FF 12.0a1 Nightly as it works the best to My eyes, as I see nothing better about newer versions, only defects unfixed and walled off versions that night work better...

Thread title is only partially correct. All IE versions from 6 to 9 are affected. IE8 is vulnerable.

Agreed. And I have run into malware specifically designed and targeted to Chrome, but I still use it as my everyday browser.

Just because you didn't experience it, doesn't mean it didn't happen! ;-)


I've experienced issues with every major browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera). I choose to remain with Chrome because of it's speed and adherence to web standards.
