I learned that Firefox 2 has arrived, and I wondere if any of you have tried it yet? If so, is it reccommended and will installing it over Firefox 1 mess up my settings. bookmarks and so on? Is there anything I would like to know before dl-ing and installing?

browsing this exact page with it right now. i haven't had any trouble except with the fact the tabbrowser extensions hasn't been updated yet. otherwise, its ok. i'd say it was worth it for me but still don't be hasty

I just got Firefox 2. Everything works good, it imported all of my bookmarks, settings and search engines. I'd recommend you to get it. In case you're worried that some extensions might not work, get FF2 and install Nightly Tester Tools.

Hey. mg2: Whats with the system requirements?! mg2:

Reccomended 128 MB ram????!!!!!

This would suck up my recourses big time.

A browser reccomending 128 ram????

That`s all of the ram I have :angry: What will happen if I try to run a broswer and something else? A "Slow Poke Rodrigez" situation?

<_<

P.S. This is Slow Poke Rodrigez - The slowest mouse in all Mexico...

... or you could do like me, and stick with your old version of FireFox. The version I have currently have everything I'll ever need in a browser, why would I even want to switch in the first place?

nice one velik. i saw ie7 being used on another computer and it looked like absolute crap :LOL:
> EOF - FF2.0 isn't so bad but it's your choice to upgrade or not. i like it personally but others might not so i'd say try it if you want to find out.
