WOW! Nearly 9 1/2 MILLION downloads! That's saying something. Now, I wonder how many will continue to use the browser. I don't think I am. Wink

That's pretty neat, but I think the people in Germany are cooking the books. Laughing

It's also nice to see the page render so nicely in Safari. Wink

Safari 4.0 is faster....

Liked some of the new features but took to long to load certain web pages.

I will still continue to use firefox as a second browser. mostly because i hate opera.

I'm not a big fan of Opera either. Well, at least on the desktop side of things. I'll mostly use Firefox 3 for backup as well. At one time, it was the only thing that would let me print Blockbuster coupons. For that I am thankful.

It might be available as a torrent since Apple has seeded it to developers...and yes it is just checked Smile

That didn't take long. Laughing

Is anything else standing out from the current release?

Apart from speed I can't see a difference from the current release, but to be fair I haven't had chance to have a proper look round.

I upgraded to FF 3 earlier today. Most of the changes aren't visible.

There are obvious design/feature changes to the address bar and the navigation toolbar icons have been changed in appearance but that's pretty much what you can see.

One minor annoyance: if you want to sort bookmarks alphabetically you have to go to the bookmarks manager to do it. You can't do it within a bookmarks folder on the bookmarks sidebar window. Pretty odd. Perhaps they'll fix that.

I think Firefox 3 is awesome once you turn off the "awesome bar". Smile
