Sup peeps.

Resolution is obvious; I will put Firefox 5 up against any and all contenders and on any PC/Mac operating system you like. I'm specifically excluding phone/PDA/mp3 hardware like Andriod and iPod/iPad.

First round is for acceptance. No arguments please.

Please don't accept this debate if you aren't going to finish it OR if you don't know what you're talking about.

Thank you and good luck.

I accept the Con position, and I await the first Pro argument.

PISSANT OPENING ARGUMENT BECAUSE I'M HUNGOVER AND ONLY HAVE 30 MINUTES LEFT
Firefox 5.0 has seen significant improvements over 4.x.
It is a very fast browser, able to run on all operating systems (where IE9 for example, cannot run on OSX).
It also has the massive catalogue of useful apps which one can use to customise their browsing experience.
I'll elaborate and provide sources during round two.

I had initially believed that Firefox 3 is the best browser, not Firefox 5, because newer updates of Firefox have incompatibility with too many add-ons designed for Firefox 3 (or so I thought). I discovered after accepting the debate, however, that Firefox 5 can override those compatibility issues. So, that makes Firefox 5 the better browser. I now have no disagreement with the resolution, and I forfeit.

Sorry. I don't know what I can do to make up for the act of accepting the Con position of a debate with a resolution that I very quickly agreed with after doing a little investigation, but the least I can do is to show you this video on YouTube.

That's fine Abe. No hard feelings.
It can't be denied; FF5 IS the best browser. :P

Abe, please leave your last round to run out of time.
That will prevent this debate from showing up on the main page, where I think only finished debates should be displayed.

I have added almost everyone to my block list who let the time run out in the last round, and now I am going to have to add myself to the block list. Ultimate humiliation.

No rush. Just don't let the time run out, because I hate it when that happens--I'll add you to my block list.

Reasons for voting decision: Concession and forfeit. I dunno, I use 5 and it seems to crash a lot. Chrome is rising rapidly in popularity, so maybe it's worth a look.
