One guy made JavaScript speed comparison between Firefox, IE and Opera: JavaScript Speed Tests.

Results are such: Firefox, IE - suxx, Opera - rulez.

There is another comparison regarding standards support: Link #1, Link #2 and Link #3.

Nevertheless, when it comes to AJAX support the result could be opposite. Check Netvibes with the browser of Your choice.

Over complicated browsing

There is one Firefox extension that can convert it into a "semantic web browser": Piggy Bank.

It's about 5.5 MB and also requires Java. It provides another "view" to a web page by gathering some statistics and reformatting the page layout accordingly.

Troubles with blog posting

It is not actually a trivial thing to make a blog post. I've spend about 25 minutes trying to write all the stuff about WordPress, spell checker in Firefox 2.0 Beta and so on. And what is a result?
