Chill out guys..no one is blaming hotmail users

@ Garth: yup! plans seem to be overambitious? The haven't even got out Firefox 4 and they're talking about the next three versions

The fun will start out when the addon authors don't update their addons properly.

Roadmap:

I think Hotmail is set to gain some ground again. I have used a hotmail account for years as my junk address, and moved to Gmail ever since I got my first "invite." In fact I got an invite to Gmail back when it was tough to come by them. Anyone up for guessing who sent me my first one? ....... It was Gizmo himself, and I have ever since been in his debt.

Anyway it has been the buzz the last few days that Hotmail has added a new feature where by you can create and use alias email addresses with your main account. Basically you can use them like "throw-away" email addresses. (Note: you can only create up to 5 per year, to a total of 15) I usually use mailinator.com for that purpose, and probably much of the time still will, but since hotmail will allow for a bit more control it will probably start using this new feature myself as well.

My guess is that this is a "double edged" sword since it will likely be use by spammers, and spam avoiders alike.

I think the reason they are planning on doing this is to try to "lock horns" a bit more with Google. See there is probably a bit of psychology involved. Chrome is at version 9 already and so is IE, making Firefox 4 sound dated. Trouble is, Chromes release cycle is quite short at about 8 weeks, and I think Firefox will be trying to play the version number catchup game for a long time.

Personally I think they should consider dropping the numbers anyway, because while single digits like Firefox 8 and 9 or maybe even doubles like 10 - 12 sound fine, throw in "-teen" to the mix and it begins to loose its appeal imho.

John: "I am using Firefox 32." Jane: "So what! I am using Google 46!"

Glad you said that, i thought it was just me. It definitely seems like the startup is slower on my machine too. Is anybody testing this browser on XP btw?

I just started it up without the sandbox and it took around three seconds, as opposed to around eight seconds sandboxed. Sandboxed from a cold start it takes much longer.

Can any of you tell me... the speed difference in opening up pages, with NoScript, and without NoScript? Am asking that because when Firefox 3 came out, someone shared that NoScript made Firefox slow... and I found that to be true. I haven't been using NoScript since then. Would like to know if this still holds true with Firefox 4.

Please tell me the above without using Firefox with Sandboxie... just plain Firefox .
