Mozilla & Gecko clones "The fifth public alpha build of Firefox 3 has been officially released. The new alpha build, which is codenamed Gran Paradiso, features early components of the revamped Places system, a cohesive storage framework that will unify bookmark and history storage. An earlier prototype of the Places system was tested in early Firefox 2 alpha (Bon Echo) builds but was removed because it couldn't be completed within the Firefox 2 release timeframe."

I guess this is why I don't use Firefox. The most basic features are all available as extensions only (session saver, speed dial, mouse gestures, user-agent switcher, etc...). Ironically, Firefox's setup file is 3x bigger than Opera's, that has the functionality of most of these extensions included as default, ready to use out of the box, no need to have to search for them on the web, no version issues between the browser and extensions. It just works.
