This was a simple post that turned into a small review of Firefox 4.
First off, Great job Firefox, now that design is compact! Although I had to manually set this up, by making sure the Menu did not show, it looks nice. Nice, clean, good look!
Second, please tell me why there is still a seperate search box. Since Chrome, I moved away from Firefox, but now that the new Firefox is here, it’s pretty nice and I might like to use it for web debugging. But even Internet Explorer 9 realized that you don’t need two boxes up top. Remove the search and implement it into the features of the address bar. Even IE9 I began using for one of my clients that I regularly VPN into.
Now to try out WebGL, I go to my Hello World Tetris Game and ughh!
Here’s how to manually setup WebGL to force start.
Go to the address bar and type in “about:config” press enter. Click [I'll be careful, I promise!] Isn’t it nice how all of our applications are beginning to get some personality?
Find “webgl.force-enabled” and double click it to get the value to “true” and it will now be bolded. All done, simply restart the browser.
Firefox was very close, but no cigar… I’ll stick with Chrome. Although Firebug does have a special place in my heart.
