Flash videos, like those shown on Youtube and various news sites, sometimes just show a black square and never start. A refresh is needed and sometimes that doesn't even work. On a website my son goes to for kids flash games, it happens frequently. I got so frustrated on the Windows XP PC he was using with Chrome, I cut and pasted the link into IE8, which worked perfectly.
Opera with Turbo mode is the only way to browse on dialup. Makes 22k at the in-laws bearable.

For any Mac users here (since we don't have a Mac forum), anyone having problems with Firefox? I'm getting some random freezes here and there on my MacBook Pro, but not having those issues with Chrome. So at this point, it's a trade-off: Go with FF for smooth Flash playback or go with Chrome for smooth everything but Flash. I think I'm going back to Chrome.

I don't think it's a Mac issue. I've had random freezes and one issue I can't figure out at all. FF will crash suddenly, then will not run in anything but FF safe mode. After getting it restored all add ons are gone, settings, everything.

Not very happy with it atm.

Agreed. Went back to Chrome on Friday and have yet to have any issues with it. I'm sure I'll try FF out again once they can fix their performance issues.

No issues here with FF4.

Can't stand Chrome.

Same here FF hasn't been giving me any issues at all, and chrome kind of annoys me.

One thing I really love about firefox that no other browser does, is when you have the find tab (ctrl+f) open you can go back and forth between web pages and just hit enter for it to search, rather than having to hit control f and type it in again each time you switch pages.
