Milestones come and go, but hitting the big ten is always a feat worth applauding. It seems like just yesterday that the first beta of Mozilla's Firefox was rolling out, but today -- millions of users later -- the tenth iteration is available for download. Firefox 10.1 is now ready to be used by Mac, Linux and PC advocates, with a number of user interface tweaks in tow. There are also a slew of new APIs that provide full-screen web app viewing, CSS 3D transition support, a new CSS inspector, and too many changes to list. Well, almost.

The entire list can be found here, and the download is there in the Via link below. Anyone upgrading and care to tell us what plug-ins break?

No more internet explorer or firefox-----CSS3 3d-transforms is what i think everybody was waiting for and now its supported, also inspect tool with content highlight---very useful. I stay with Chrome for the win anyways!

Been using Chrome ever since Firefox would randomly start taking dumps mid-session, on multiple computers in my home.

Updated and no problems so far... I have never had memory leak problems with Firefox personally and I am sure the fixed a lot more than what is listed.

Turned off auto updating in disgust. I will not be updating at all until they allow complete disabling of Tabs. I hate being forced into an interface that is seriously unproductive for me. Other people can have their tabs, just give people who don't want tabs a way to remove all references to Tabs in the UI.

I use both Chrome and Firefox but spend the majority of my time on Chrome, ever since I started using it. Before I was a huge FF fan, now I prefer the interface of Chrome.

Never stop learning... until you're dead.

Jack of all trades, master of none.
