There are some controls and other little features I really like in the
Mozilla series.  Mainly it lacks a few per-site controls.  Lot's of
nifty plugins though, some of which make up for the gaps.

I like Firefox OK, but it still doesn't really solve the general
problems of the browsers.

I also can't figure out why people think it is so fast.  It must be
because you guys are comparing it to older browsers.

Something I've noticed: with Firefox, killing the java_vm process
(because it eats 250MB on my system and slows it down), also kills

*DAMN* that is annoying.
