All this "Firefox crashes....uses tons of memory.....can't do this or that".
TBH - I don't agree. I've been using FF since 3.5 and allowed all the upgrades. It doesn't crash. The only times it will crash is if your installation of Windows in borked. I know this having worked in IT Support for over 5 years and seen FF installed on unstable Windows and stable Windows.
I'm running it on Win7 64 Bit and I get no memory leaks or crashes. I was previously running it on a 4 yr old PC with Win7 32 bit. Again, no issues.
It is still a cleverer browser than IE. IE, quite frankly annoys the hell out of me. Chrome isn't compatible with enough things I do. (It doesn't work with Citrix gateways very well - if you know what that is). It is more configuarable - and allows you more things that you want to do. Not what Microshaft wants you to do.
I like having a removable separate search bar. I hate sharing it in Chrome. Horses for courses though. As for a quick release schedule. Rapid Application Development - allows issues to be dealt with much faster, than IE, which moves like a slow-dinosaur.
It's the choice browser for Linux users. Or rather, the most commonly installed browser there. I don't think this browser is being 'killed' at all.
