Iron is my favorite browser now. I liked Firefox, but it got to buggy with the new engine and for some reason their still having trouble fixing it after several updates. I noticed with Iron, when I go into TVShack.com to watch a movie, I don't get the popup in there and the site has no mention of an AdBlocker being used. With Firefox and AdBlock Plus the site noticed it and gave a flag stating, This site is ad-promoted and please disable your adblocker. So, it appears that Iron does have adblocking capabilities

Please give more details about this. How did you find Firefox buggy?

Now a bookmark icon has been available to Chrome 3.0, don't need right click.

Add " --bookmark-menu" (a leading space, without quotes) at the end of the shortcut to Chrome.exe, then run Chrome from the shortcut.

Bookmark sync is available to Chrome 4.0 (beta).

Add " --bookmark-menu --enable-sync" to the shortcut.

Not sure if they're applicable to SRWare Iron.

Hi Anupam, mainly since the new engine, I can feel a slight drag on my Windows XP and I get too many, "Server cannot be found" when trying to open websites. I probably hold the worlds record for reinstalling FF, and that is after removing every file. I even tried every fix known to the web. Finally I simply got fed up and installed Iron and it made me recall how quick and smooth a browser is suppose to operate. Don't get me wrong here. I would switch back to FF in a heartbeat, if it functioned nearly as good as Iron. I simply like the layout of FF the best.

I forgot to mention...What got me really upset with Firefox is when it started freezing, hanging. That is when I finally ditched it for Iron. You might check out the FF Forum Support website, to see the long list of annoyances...

Hi Aqua, yes and it's really a shame in my book. I could go back to an earlier FF version, but would have the security issues. Let's just hope that someone at Mozilla finds a workable solution to, what once was an Outstanding Web Browser...
