Mozilla aren't hanging about are they, https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Roadmap#tl.3Bdr wanting to get 5, 6 & 7 out this year.

Have to say I like Firefox 4, both here at work and at home it's faster than 3 for me.
Shame only us 4 developers here can use Firefox, about 70% of the others here are on IE7, and the remaining are still on IE6!

We're trying our hardest to persuade the powers that be to get everyone onto IE8 for our sanity!!!

Yup, I like it too

In fact, I use the following on my web site immediately after the doctype in html5.


Code: Select all
<!doctype html>

   <!--[if lte IE 7]>
        <script>
            location.href='info3.html';
        </script>
   <![endif]-->

<html lang="en" dir="ltr" id="Mirana&nbsp;Net">
<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">

Have you tried modernizer. I started and looks amazing.

And yes, ff4 is really fast compared to ff3.

I've checked it out BUT decided to go with PIE.

I also eliminate visitors lte IE7 from my web site by virtue of the lack in CSS support.

Btw, the bug I found in FF4 will be fixed in FF5 which is slated to be released June5.
