Looks better than it does in IE6, too. I've been using FF3 for a few weeks now, and it's pretty nice. I want my extensions to be updated for it, but that's not FF's fault.

For you IE folks, it's a good time to upgrade. You get more features, it's faster, pages look better, it's WAY more secure and it doesn't cost you anything.

They're not minor to me. I'm missing Firebug badly.

It's an extremely useful web development tool. Javascript debugging, server calls, all sorts of stuff in there. EXTREMELY useful to me, not so much to most folks.

That's the beauty of extensions.... you fill your browser up with the things that matter to you and leave out the stuff that doesn't. I noticed in the "recommended" extensions they have one for Stumbleupon and a youtube video downloader and webmail notifier... none of these are interesting to me, but to somebody else they may be indispensable.

Just installed it. Man it is FAST! Can't wait to get home and install it on my Mac.

Yeah I've been running the beta for a few weeks. I really like the undo closed tabs button and the option of having FF reload all the open tabs from your previous session at startup, instead of just pointing you at your homepage.

There's some cool stuff for gmail too, including the gmail manager I use to keep track of all four accounts at once, one click logins.

Count me in. I was impressed with FF3 release candidate 2. The real FF3 is great...
