firefox sucks

firefox in windows sucks in unicode support, gujarati fonts are screwed while i open divyabhaskar.co.in. instead of that akilaindia.com is rapchik and very fast. the cool thing is they have started putting images instead of keeping it text based and avoiding the font issues.

firefox sucks with p3 256mb ram. it takes more than 100mb of ram and youtube videos gets slowed down while playing.

firefox sucks for 64bit. it doesnt have plugins for flahs, pdf and many more.

firefox sucks as it has no installer concept in linux. i downloaded latest firefox tarball from net and extracted in under fc7 64bit, and it failed to start just because of a missing library, while the library it asks for is still present in the machine and proper paths are set..

still i use firefox, i dont know why…
