I'm still using v42, works well. Some in the Linux community aren't happy with the latest effort.
"New firefox update removed npapi and alsa support."
So, users are moving away from it towards Chrome, Opera, etc.

I've been happy with chrome. Amazing how well it handles this forum software. Could this still be the most advanced forum software out there?

There has been a surge in Opera stuff since the whole https debacle went mainstream. Though I still am happy with Chrome too~
