Launch Minefield now

My Mozilla Firefox kicked the bucket on my P4 2GHZ workstation. I've gone ahead and installed the latest experimental Minefield browser from Mozilla. Minefield is essentially the next version of Firefox, however many problems are fixed from the previous version. Unfortunately all add ons won't work unless you use the nightly tester tools. It's not THAT new though, other bloggers {, have been using it, they have blogged about how great Minefield works quite some time in the past.

If you're still using Firefox, I highly recommend upgrading. I've been testing it personally for a while, it's stable and 10% faster than Google Chrome. The restore session dialog, which I love using, is much improved from previous versions of Firefox. I use Minefield to surf NullShells Networks as well.
