Regular listeners to the TuxRadar podcast will know that I switched to Firefox 4 a few weeks ago, after a couple of happy years with Google Chrome. Initially I was very happy with Firefox's performance, and really wanted to like it, but... Well, read on.
In preparing the LXF coverdisc, I came across an incredibly annoying problem that also pushed me away from Firefox a few years ago. WHY won't it let me save certain files automatically?! (Like this one for instance.) Why does it let me download .zip files automatically, but greys out that choice for certain .tar.gz and PDF files?
Really poor. I remember having these problems with Firefox ages ago, then switched to Chrome and finding it just downloaded stuff and left me alone. Firefox keeps getting in my face, telling me it knows better and stops me doing things that are important to my workflow.
So back I go to Chrome for a few years at least.
