Anyone use it yet? Came out quite recently.

I saw a YouTube video for it. They have something called the privacy feature which hides everything that you do and deletes your browsing history off your machine. I guess that is good when you are reading The Resort or other pr0n related things. riiight.gif rotfl.gif

I just updated to 3.0.11 yesterday.

Chrome has that security thing. They call it stealth mode.

I deliberately wait a few weeks so that the extensions will get updated. It's difficult to use firefox without them :/

I got it on Windows. It's slightly faster, but nothing spectacular. I'm just a bit disappointed it fell behind even IE8 in terms of features like private browsing. Unfortunately FFx still lacks the ability to sandbox tabs so that one tab will not crash the entire browser.

I decided to use Chrome today, and it felt like it was pretty fast.

Chrome and IE are much faster than Firefox. I really like Firefox's extensions and security, though. I just wish it were as fast (and resource-intensive, I suppose) as Chrome and IE.

I'm wary of "built-in" security and privacy features. Feels like it defeats the purpose to be honest. For instance, if you are running Windows and you want to securely delete a file, I would trust and third-party file deletion program than a built-in Windows one. Same goes for Firefox 'stealth' mode or whatever, I'd rather go through the motions of deleting any sensitive data manually myself than trust the very companies you are trying to hide the data from.

Or is that just me?

I think that's just you. I'm not trying to hide my data from Mozilla when using Firefox; I'm trying to hide it from someone who wants my $$$, from hackers, and from potential trojans. Of course, the whole logic is nullified in Chrome because Google DOES collect the world's largest amounts of user-privacy data...

When you delete a facebook photo, you never really delete it. If you copy the .jpg file link, and go back a month later, it will still be stored somewhere. Just goes to say, that even if your drunken night seems to have been deleted, its not. Browsers are somewhat the same way.

Ah, yes... the .ak. in the address.

I wonder if I can recover old photos then...

Not sure. Akamai does caching, but I'm not sure for how long

That's why web2.0 amuses me. Personally, if you want to host pictures of yourself, you should code up the html, get ftp access and make your own website, lazy ass kids today stongue.gif

*gasp* The dark side of web 2.0.

Is firefox 3.5 faster? Once I started using Chrome and I updated IE, Firefox has seemed so slow in comparison.
