Well, I gave Firefox an honest try and after over a month of solid use (no other browser used in that time span), I am back to Maxthon (former MyIE2) as my primary browser. I started to see some sites that I frequent not displaying properly. One of the major ones was TVGuide.com, specifically in the listings section. I could not change the time to view with Firefox, but it works perfectly in Maxthon.

I gave it a good go and wound up back were I thought that I would. I had to wait for Firefox to get the proper plugins to make it work like my Maxthon works out of the box, but even after getting all of the required plugins, I was still left wanting.

I'm just waiting until the time where Maxthon can use the Gecko engine and I will be one happy camper! BTW, Maxthon seems to use up less RAM than Firefox when I am surfing the web as well. Ex... Firefox with no windows open uses 17Mb of RAM (uses 21Mb of Ram with the same 2 windows as Maxthon open), while Maxthon with 2 windows open uses 14Mb of RAM... Even more reason to switch back!
