Firefox 1.5 Beta 1

Beta Tester

Yes, 1.5 Beta 1 is out!!

I started disliking FF coz it gave me memory creeps. It was consuming sys memory like a monster. I generally have my browser open for a very long time, I open and close tabs. It appeared that FF 1.* wasn’t freeing the memory after the tab is closed.

It has been 5 minutes since I downloaded the new ver. and is too early to claim anything, but still this one feels much better.

Aaina, had some probs with WP and IE, so I recommended her to download Opera, coz I was unhappy w/ FF. Opera works well!! I was also thinking to move from FF to Opera, but never got a chance. Probably now, I won’t have to change my browser.

Another News about FF: A flaw has been spotted in FF (all versions.) If you use FF and haven’t patched it yet, here is your chance to know more about the bug and download a temporary work around.
