FoxMediaCenter and didn't have time or patience too fix the code, so I still can benefit from the speed of 3.5 without loosing the ability to run my extension when I need it.
3.5 breaks for me plain text to link and bookmark duplicate detector and the update to 2 or 3 broke conquery...
loosing plugins is part of the game and this is the downside of the plugin system and not doing a browser which addresses the power user.
i also test midori and epiphany and hopefully soon chrome without phone home.
btw. you should try http://www.tvbrowser.org/

about your foxmediacenter
such sounds terrible for me. call me paranoid but security has for me the highest priority.- FoxMediaCenter performs several actions using shell scripts included in the extension code. The developer is not aware if this could create security holes. So use it at your own risk.
- In order to schedule recordings and reminders, the extension creates a file (.change.cron) in the user home directory and and add it to the crontab when the extension loads. This could override your personal cron jobs.
Now seriously, I don't even know if there are any risks. It could be my own paranoia kicking in, but I just wanted to let people be aware of the possibility and reasons.
I have created the extension for my personal use, but decided to release it on Mozilla because it would be selfish to keep it only for me. Nevertheless, I released it as an experimental extension and don't have plans to request Mozilla's review. Maybe a good programmer would grab it someday and release a new one, more efficient and functional.
It works for me. It could be better, but I still prefer to use it, then any other EPG out there, specially those using Java
