Reverted to 29.0.3.0

Post by Passenger »

Version 30 was just too buggy.

No one bug was a deal killer, but it keeps crashing and generally misbehaving too much for me to bother tracking down any more bugs.

That said, Slimjet is still my default browser, and I will give the next update a whirl.

I have already done that several times.
Waiting for the next major version before upgrading.
None of the version 30 improvements do anything for me anyway.

Also: Just checked memory usage and it's less than half than version 30 at its best.

I think they rolled 30 out too quickly with not enough beta testing.
All manner of things that worked before got broken.

30.0.4.0 Released.

I'll give it a shot over the weekend, but I still have my 29.0.3.0 installer on hand just in case.

Better, but still too flaky when it comes to clearing cookies when closing a window.
Also numerous little annoyances that may be related to excessive memory usage.
Sent a more detailed report using the official reporting system.

Sticking with 29.0.3.0 for now, but hopeful going forward.

The really need to do more thorough regression testing to assure they didn't break anything, even before releasing beta.
