Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has released Firefox 7. Unlike releases of Firefox 5 and Firefox 6 which were relatively minor upgrades to the browser, Firefox 7 includes a number of significant improvements, most important of which is probably the drastically reduced memory usage.

Had serious problems with v6

With v6 almost ALL ajax in the web site of the company where i work (that uses jQuery 1.3.2/1.4.3 for scripts compatibility) were not performing; or even performing the first time then stop working; at first it seemed was firebug because things seemed to perform just fine without and i upgraded it to a beta version, but later things were still not working; solution: had to downgrade to v3.6 in order to continue develop; a colleague of mine is still using v4 and i see that sometimes some styles break on a wordpress theme (in sidebars titles get bigger and misplaced).

I stopped using Firefox for development entirely. Using Chrome at the moment and obviously checking that stuff works in IE, Firefox, Safari as I go along ... But none of them are that good IMO.

Chrome is the best ... but I am worried I will end up "coding for webkit" rather than coding cross browser.
