Firefox 13 Released
All of you Firefox users out there can find a new version (version 13) available for download. The browser update brings some improvements as well as a new interface for opening a new tab and a new start page layout. The update is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux computers. The complete list of changes in Firefox 13 is as follows (via Mozilla's Firefox 13 change log):

You can click on any of these nine previews to navigate to that Web site. The new tab interface loads up very quickly and includes a screenshot preview in each box along with a description. You can also drag them around in any order you would like. You can see the new tab interface below:
Most other new features as simply bug fixes or support for new HTML and CSS elements. The updated Firefox 13 still does not have support for Mac OS X’s native full-screen application mode. Nine times out of ten, the update prompt will come up automatically for all Firefox users letting you know that you have an update ready to be installed. If you want to download the update manually, you can use any of the links for all of the operating systems included below:
Firefox 13 for Mac OS X
Firefox 13 for Windows
Firefox 13 for Linux
Note: Mozilla recommends the following hardware requirements for Firefox 13:
- Pentium 4 or newer processor that supports SSE2
- 512MB of RAM
- 200MB of hard drive space

so is it getting any faster? It's almost on Safari's level, constantly freezing and lagging. I try each update, but I can never switch over from Chrome

I wonder if you could get the exposé style screen on startup, safari-style.

I use safari so for me it doesn't make an difference at all

Useless unless it comes up to par with chrome. Everytime I give Firefox a try, pages just don't display correctly like they nearly always do in chrome

Have to agree with some others. Chrome is just an awesome browser! It works in full screen, it's fast and it just looks better.
I keep trying to go back to Firefox but find myself always going back to chrome.

I am a long time Firefox user, and have tried them all. I like it mainly for the customization, add ons and extensions that are available with it. Kinda like jailbreaking and tweaking your phones really.
It does indeed load up sometimes, but I can deal with that.

Full screen browsing on an iMac is overkill.
