A lot of new things listed here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/features/

After reading it I can see there is nothing there that interests me except for perhaps the "Securing Website Connections" option.

Indeed, there are more things there that I definitely don't want. "Password Manager", "Form Complete", "Session Restore". I hope in FF4 there are options available to completely disable these things.

I know I will eventually be forced to upgrade, but right now I see no point to go there. I doubt all of my current add-ons will work with FF4 yet (I'm too lazy to check now, I'll just wait until I am forced to upgrade and see what doesn't work at that time).

In case you didn't know, there is no "chrome kernel." Chrome OS (or whatever they call it) is just Linux minus any semblance of user freedom.

I believe he is talking about the browsers kernel, not chromium OS's...

I agree 100%!

ff4 is a little faster than 3.x I will admit, but still slow imho...

there are kernels everywhere, TTS engines have pretty complex kernels i.e.

that's just a subset, you won't find this type too:

I've been using it for a couple months now. It was really buggy, just a few weeks ago. They've come a long way. I like the new layout of the menu stuff. I put tabs back on the bottom(because I use them most), but the elimination of the menu bar was plain genius, even if they did steal the idea from Chrome. Smile

ass0: I don't get how that is relevant. What does it have to do with browsers?

I don't see how the last link you posted is related to browsers.

OK, to put in simply words, a (computing type) kernel might be:

The OS Core
The TTS Core
The Browser Core
...

but it's not a simple synonym of 'core'.

EDIT: This was before I saw your most recent post.
Yeah... I'm still not getting it. Try something along the lines of "Kernels are related to browsers in that [your thoughts here]." I can't prove you wrong when your posts contain no substance. Not that you are; There's no way to know, as of yet.

EDIT: This is after.
If you mean core, say core. Kernel isn't used to mean the core of a browser. Try Googling "browser kernel" and see what you get. It'll be nothing even related to the core of a browser.
