Wow nice finding
But im with Pode ....
If a browser Made by Firefox Is better than Firefox ! that means that there are chances that the browser is powerful and unstable ,
More precisely...
Firefox is a stable browser
Aurora is better than firefox
egals...
Unstability
(Aurora is better in Html5 but not stable like Firefox )
So even if Aurora is better in HTML5 it's always firefox ( same code or upgraded for HTML5)
Meaning Aurora is only for testing and will not be like chrome for ever

That's it
(sorry for non-comprehensible text :p, first time I explain like this)

I must admit i have a tendency to stick to the oldest working version of stuff sothat i don't count on the enduser having to update if they are a version behind. It helps to keep the general experience be positive or better. So if FF10 or Chromex worked i will stick to that for a while cause i know some players/visitors/customers still do out of whatever reason. I hope that makes sense the way i put it :pUberDark2012-02-12 01:47:32

Doesn't seem to run as well as Chrome, and physics are also a bit off.

I have problems with the controls in Chrome, that's why I posted this.

And Chrome seems not to allow playing games from folders.RacerXXL2012-02-12 13:19:07

As someone noted Aurora is simply an alpha of a future version of Firefox. Instead of using Aurora you can just simply wait for a couple of months, and Aurora will make its way to beta, then to stable release. Chrome and Firefox both have a process like this:

Firefox: Nightly (3 versions ahead) -> Aurora (2 versions ahead) -> Beta (1 version ahead) -> Stable (current version everyone is using)
Chrome: Nightly (3 versions ahead) -> Canary (2 versions ahead) -> Beta (1 version ahead) -> Stable (current version everyone is using)

The further ahead you are the more likely you are to have stability problems and crashes, because it's pre-release software. However you can get to play with the bleeding edge features, and also sometimes they're faster. For example I was in touch with Mozilla recently and they've added a performance improvement that helps speed up Construct 2 games in Firefox 12 (currently Aurora). That's why it'll be faster - it should be about equal with Chrome. If you don't want to install Aurora, you can just wait for Firefox 12 to get released :)
