I was doing some virus and malware zapping in my cousin's totally trashed Win 7 laptop earlier this evening. After removing 157 infections and deleting three separate proxy setups initiated by malware apps, I got the system back to normal and usable again.

I opened his Firefox to download CCleaner and WOW! Firefox 32 is installed on his system. It looks IDENTICAL to Chromium/Chrome? WOW! So, FF is copying Chrome's interface these days, huh? I wonder if FF 32 is also as lean and mean as Chromium/Chrome is. I'd have to compile from source to install FF 32 on Slackware, but it might be worth it just to play around with it and compare to Chromium/Chrome.

:)
