You really are a broken record aren't you? You read an article about something being bad and instead of actually trying to find out the truth for yourself you run around like Chicken Little constantly repeating old gossip. I'm still waiting for you to tell me what malware the current Digsby installer is supposed to come with. I won't hold my breath as trolling seems to be all you are good for.

Now for those with some intelligence and a sense of humour http://hawtness.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/129083901075555741.jpg

wonder what you're trying to sell  :D You got shares at Digsby INC. or what ? how to you call the insistence you've got on promoting that sh*t? no broken record there ? what do think you sound like then ? I'll re-post these Digsby screen shots as many times as necessary, until your trolling here stops you get it ? GTFO  ;)

Until Chrome gets a real ad-blocker like Adblock Plus for FF, I'll stick with FF.

Chrome has three ad blockers available for it via http://chrome.google.com/extensions

Need to be using the beta versions though.

Yeah, but they don't really block the ads.  They are still downloaded, just are not shown.  ABP actually blocks them from being downloaded.

Firefox 3.6 is now out and it looks and works really great. The future doesn't look grim at all if you ask me.
Just updated to Firefox 3.6 yesterday and I'm really pleased. So much faster now so I can really zip through the interwebs. Also I installed  "Personas" along with my standard security addons and am a happy happy camper!

When you say you installed Personas do you just mean you installed some Personas or that you installed the extension because it's my belief that Personas support is actually built in to 3.6.

As a long time FF user, and one who has tried other browsers as well, I will not be dumping FF for the likes of Chrome in the foreseeable future. I actually installed Chrome and left it installed using it to test web sites if they won't access in my FF, confirming it's a site server problem. Other than the obvious speed advantage of Chrome it is a sparse uninteresting browser for me. I leave it on my desktop just to watch it as it develops over time. Maybe someday it will develop into something. If FF could figure out how to load as fast as Chrome, Chrome would disappear having nothing to offer.  ;)

Firefox Personas is really weird because there is no good design...All of them are tasteless!

I am not impressed! Maybe you are

I personally think Personas suck. Unless you have your icons on large and at least one toolbar open you don't really see anything. At least Chrome's skins also change the background on default pages like the new tab page.

agreed, it looks like sh*t  ;) I hated it when the extension already existed, I still hate it with the new direct interface from Firefox. They obviously, with the direct interface now, wanted to compete with Chrome, but at least in Chrome there are some nice themes, all persona skins are freaking horrible  :D

Didn't Firefox have Personas before Chrome had themes?

Chrome has AdBlock. Is this not the same thing?
