Firefox 9.0 Released
Firefox 9.0 unofficially released by Mozilla – download links included.
Firefox 9.0 has been officially set to be released tomorrow; if you're impatient, you can download the official release unofficially right now. Firefox is a speedy Web Browser that I use by preference. I think that it's one of the fastest, but I generally love the freedom of addons. Unfortunately, even after Firefox version 9.0, Mozilla still has not included Mac OS X Lion's full-screen application feature to their Web browser. But, it does have the two-finger navigation gestures that come included with Mac OS X Lion's Safari Web Browser.
Firefox 9.0 is fully compatible with almost all of the addons that worked on Firefox 8.0 and because of that, you won't have to worry about an addon crisis like we had to deal with with a recent previous version of Firefox which was just recently fixed. The update brings speed and stability enhancements and added HTML5 support as well as the new features mentioned above. You can view and read the entire list of release notes from Mozilla from this link. If you have trouble seeing your bookmark icons from your bookmarks menu, you can fix this issue by emptying your Firefox cache and restarting the browser afterwards.
I would rank Mozilla Firefox as easily my favorite Web browser. Safari doesn't have enough addons and it isn't open source, Google Chrome just feels too loose for me and doesn't have as many addons, Internet Explorer is just plain slow, and Opera just seems to load things oddly. Firefox is my preferred browser because albeit it opens slower, it loads pages much faster than some other browsers. Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox's closest competitor, opens quickly but doesn't seem to open pages as fast. It's a give or take situation, but I would recommend Mozilla Firefox to anyone. Check it out!

Chrome has all those nice web apps though. Chrome is fastest in my opinion. But I'll probably check this out.

i would use chrome if it had a Reading List compatible with iphones. it's sort of counter-productive to use the desktop safari for reading lists i set up in my phone, then use chrome for normal web browsing.
