    Well you are right about the JS issue but if you were a blogger and you want your site to be a SEO friendly, you will not use javascipts at all because they are harmful for a site when it is intended to go for the SEO stuff. For me, firefox is still the best and the number one reason for that on why its still the best are the “plug-ins” :)

    Thanks a landlord it! I acquired yet some insight. Life is so colorful, we should be able to live in, such as Korea and honor the planet. Human life is like rivers, slowly flowing, flowing rivers, flowing through the snow, flows through the prairie and ultimately into the sea, return to the embrace of nature, start a new reincarnation. Allow us to feel the meaning of life will come only to those you have those memories http://www.cheap-nikeshox.com/nike-shox-TL1.html

    Firefox is one of the best but not every website works properly especially when JS is used.

    These things need to be made for Google Chrome. As much as I love Firefox and as much as it has served me the past years, it's time to hang up that old faithful browser and go for the faster, younger, newer one.

    But unfortunately they don't make my WP site accessed faster from my PC. Google Gears seemed nice, but I haven't installed it again after my reinstall of Firefox.

  • http://www.goblogger.net/ Isaac | GoBlogger

    My favorite Firefox addons are FlashBlock and Fasterfox Lite. They really kick ass! Much faster browsing with them.

    Scribefire is the addon I would love to use but can't. When I publish new things on my blogs I have to enter some extra data that isn't provided with this. If it weren't for that, I would be all over this addon!
