    I had to remove firefox from 3 computers this week due to crashes and slowness. It's just bad when you can't trust the "#1" browser.

    I'm not using google myself but it seems that no one is complaining about google. If Mozilla doesn't correct these issues, they may loose their number one spot.

    However, I hear its not Firefox that usually crashes. From what I hear, the plugins are the main cause to most problems. Personally, I can not say either way because I am not experiencing these issues.
