    Firefox is so slow :(

    I would consider switching back to KDE from Win 7 just to get away from it! lol

    Pages just take so long, it gets kinda frustrating ._.

    EDIT -- Sorry before I get attacked more lol, the reason I said it was OS related (erroneously) is because I was under the impression Chrome currently only runs on Windows Vista and XP, as that's what it claims on the download page. I have changed something in my registry and now it runs on 7! Woo! )

    Yes! I had to change a registry setting thing, but now Chrome is downloading! Woo!

    I didn't think I would notice but I'm switching back now!

    No one is forcing you to use Firefox on Windows.

    EDIT: Nevermind.

    How do you know that? There may very well be someone next to his computer with a loaded shotgun just WAITING for him to install another web browser.

    you could try Swiftfox. I've been using it and it seems more responsive that stock firefox 3.5.
