Well it looks like the infinate wisdom of the people resposible for the Firefox 3.0 Download Manager has infected the developers of Opera. Opera 9.50 with all of its speed, rendering and UI improvements has managed to infuriate me. Why? Because I'm a web developer responsible (at the moment) for 20 something major websites, all of which need to be tested locally before we publish them into the wilds of the intertubes.

So anyone active in the Stardock Community knows that I don't think that Firefox is the end all, be all of web browsers. In fact I think it's still way behind a browser like Opera. Opera just isn't as popular. So I digress.

Anyhow, I dont use Firefox full time at home and I still do most of my browsing at home on IE6 (shush. I like it.) However while I'm hard at work on the Stardock family of websites, Firefox is my primary browser. I've come to love Maxthon for using the IE7 engine (most for testing and gmail) instead of the default IE7 install, which is horrible imho. And for evrything else that falls into normal browsing I use Firefox now primarily at work. For web development, even with the annoying bugs that come with it, Firebug is just the bees knees and nothing else matches it for IE or Opera.

Firefox 3 is realeased. Huzzah! Or not.
