Firefox 3 Beta 4

I, like most people, am hesitant to use beta software. It's usually buggier than a termite mound and crashes more than a sauced-up Teddy Kennedy.

However, I've been using the latest beta version of the Firefox browser (available here) and I must say that it, even in beta form, is a marked improvement over Firefox 2.

It's far more stable and it doesn't link memory like a sieve. I've had browser windows open for several days and then taken a look at my system resources and found Firefox 2 claming 900+ megs of RAM. That's not the case with the Firefox 3 beta.

There are some plug-ins which don't work with the beta, so if you're dependent on them for your Web browsing, don't switch yet. However, if you're using Firefox 2 right now, there's really no good reason not to go ahead and upgrade now.

Why, one must ask, was the suit against Biden's student debt wipe “inevitable”?

Was it because the Biden admin is in flagrant violation of the law, and because *everyone* in America knows it?

Not in Waldman’s view, apparently. | @charlescwcooke
