I downloaded and installed Firefox on my Wintel machine at work. It is pretty fast at rendering but it still has some “issues”.

When I installed it in Win98 on my VirtualPC it choked like Chicago traffic at 5PM, like Martha Stewart when she found no window treatments in her cell. In other words, it was very slow.

Is it better than IE? It renders faster than IE but it still has some bugs to work out. It has tabbed browsing which is a real winner and the reason I was an early Safari adopter. It also inherently blocks pop ups which is always a big plus.

So the verdict is: eh.
