Mozilla & Gecko clones After three release candidate builds, Firefox 1.5 is expected to be made available for download this week. And when it does arrive, it will be accompanied by a marketing campaign aimed at getting Firefox 1.0 users to upgrade and convincing users of other browsers to switch.

How can you keep a browser open for a week on windows, and why would you? And IE6 will not operate for a whole week, day in and day out with out restarting itself at least once! At least Firefox will run for that week!

Windows is more poo!

Oh how wrong you are. The last time I checked, my main PC running Server 2003 SP1 had an uptime of 50 days or so, all of which have been spent running browsers, IM clients, FTP/SMB servers, media players, and whatever other junk I have running on it right now.

All of those applications, IE included, run without problems for however long I want them to run (usually before I decide to fiddle with the hardware yet again) -- except Firefox. Firefox needs to be restarted every few days because it just starts slowing the *entire* goddamn system down.
