I do have a shortcut for it, but sometimes I can't reach keyboard

but yes, I am dependent on addon... kind of like how I'm dependent on my accessories if the core item is already good. I like good breaks/tires/paint on a good reliable car. Because I don't see firefox any more or less reliable than any other browser at this point, it all boils down to the accessories for me. This is the main reason I'm a windows user too, more accessories/software/hardware than mac or linux.

Well, Firefox works quite well for me out of the box, and as can be seen from my previous posts, that the number of extensions I use are quite less. But, it also depends on individuals, what they like to do.

I do agree about sticking with Windows though... easy installation, works out of box, and no dearth of software.

Updated quickly and easily with in-built updater.

@ George: I think the ESR version would suit you very well.

Maybe you should give it a try...

I use mostly Windows but I have also used a Mac and believe me - "easy installation, works out of box, and no dearth of software" applies to a Mac. In fact, I just upgraded a Mac to a new operating system - took about an hour. I also just upgraded a Windows system from Vista to 7 - took 4 hours and then I had to download and install a bunch of updates. All the major software I use has Mac versions, even Microsoft Office.

Lol, no not me I was just telling that when you push your product for a full fledged release just to be in time with the release cycle, surely a few bugs might crop up and which gets fixed only in the next patched version. Looking at the current trend, Mozilla had released a patch for most major versions, so it isn't right to just jump on the bandwagon and update it when one is available, when you know a patch will follow soon.
