Up Down browsers

A new beta version of Firefox is out. Chances are if you’re running beta 3, you already received a notice of beta 4. The new release has done interesting things with the toolbar. Unfortunately, it may have some roughness with SVG embedded using the object element. We’ll see.

On the down side, Microsoft’s new IE8 beta does not work with the Netflix Watch Now feature, regardless of whether you’re emulating IE7 or not. It’s that whole modifying the underlying operating system thing. Netflix keeps wanting to upgrade the movie object, and the upgrade keeps failing. You have to de-install IE8 to get the Netflix Watch Now feature to work.

More time to test, I guess.
