Hello Firefox 3

Okay, I’ve been using Safari and/or Camino for the past couple weeks and they are both totally cool and functional programs. But I have to admit, I missed Firefox, despite the abysmal performance it gave after a few days of being open. Mostly I missed Adblock Plus and the almighty Filterset.G – I’ve got PithHelmet installed on Safari and CamiTools installed on Camino (oops, Camitools is no longer developed – how do I uninstall that now?), but neither was as extensive or configurable as Adblock Plus with Filterset.G.

So I downloaded the release candidate for Firefox 3 a couple weeks ago, and updated to the release version last week. It’s pretty nice. Spiffy look and much faster performance. I haven’t made the complete decision to jump back to Firefox yet, but it is looking good.

    If you decide to take Firefox 3, it might be worth mentioning that it’s not recommend to use Filterset.G with Adblock Plus any more: It’s outdated with it’s last update in March and there are many other disadvantages: http://adblockplus.org/en/faq_project#filterset.g

    As alternative, I would recommend that you give a shot at EasyList+EasyElement, you won’t look back. ;-)

    Thank’s for the heads up Ares. That was really useful information. And I did subscribe to EasyList+EasyElement, no problems there either. Thanks a bunch!
