Firefox hits 270 million users, without Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The open source Firefox web browser from Mozilla now has some 270 million 
| users. That's the figure that Mozilla staffer Aza Dotzler is now claiming, 
| and it's not an easy number to calculate.  
| How do you count users for an open source application that does not require 
| registrations? Downloads aren't accurate, since downloads include the same 
| users that could have updated and/or downloaded revisions.

| Firefox has become bloated and slow in performance that same way IE used to 
| be before we switched to Firefox. The only thing that is stopping me from 
| switching to another browser, is the large number of extensions available for 
| Firefox. Specifically firebug. Since I spend most of my time on a Linux 
| system, over the last few days I have been looking for an alternative Linux 
| browser. Here are 10 of the best Linux browsers out there that can be a 
| decent alternative to Firefox:

| As we get closer to releasing Shiretoko (Firefox 3.5) we are considering that 
| this might be a good time to update and evolve the Firefox application icon. 
| We will likely be leveraging some conceptual work created by Jon Hicks during 
| the development of Firefox 3, but otherwise we are just now getting started.

| There are more than 7,000 Firefox extensions in Mozilla's official catalog,

| Then there are the stinkers. These add-ons that actually make the browser
| slower, or harder to use. We've compiled a list of 20 that you should steer
| clear from, if only for their lack of basic utility.
