Yay. Thanks Urza
Yay! This is exciting!
So what's the advantages of using this over firefox 2? I used it for a few minutes and didn't really see an advantage, plus I hated that new address bar thing, and then went back to FF2 where all of my addons work.
However if you can outline some advantages that require me to take another looks at FF3, I'll try it again. I still have it installed and such.
If you don't like the feature changes from 2 to 3, then don't use 3. Nobody really cares what you use ultimately. I personally like the new address bar features. I like the features implemented in the bookmark menu in RC1 that weren't there in Beta5. Plugins like flash and other media seem more stable with each release in Linux and Mac (haven't used Windows since version 3 came out, so no point of comparison).
The lack of google toolbar is a downside, but otherwise there aren't any add-ons that I used to use that don't work or have analogous versions that do work. 3 seems to work a little better on my much lower end office computer running Mac than version 2, but on my home computer there was nothing really sluggish about version 2. In Linux they're both screaming fast so nothing noticeably different for me.
For me, I really like the page zoom (scales the entire page instead of only text in FF2) and the smaller memory footprint.
Alright. I was just making sure there wasn't anything awesome that I missed in my 5-minute test of it.
I have 4GBs of ram on this computer so memory usage generally isn't a problem, though I probably will install it just for that on my laptop.
Just use it.
If you hate the awesomebar so much, the oldbar extension changes displayed results back to the way they were in FF2.
I tried RC1 on linux and the default font size were bigger than FF2.
My website menu had the text out of the place it should be.
Does it does this on Windows too ?
I don't want to test it on windows yet, because it's said on mozilla website that FF3 will install ontop of FF2 and it will be unstable to go back to FF2 by reinstalling ontop.
Is there a way to install FF3 on another profile whithout touching FF2 profile and using both in the same time ? (saving the FF2 profile could do the job, right ?)
I'm trying out RC2 right now, It is great.
Which themes are you using?d The default windows one is ugly, and it needs a better looking replacement
I run my Firefox off of my Sandisk Micro Cruiser, so I'm waiting till it gets the access to FF3.
I stopped allowing web browsers on my computer a while back.
IE? what IE?
I'm still using RC1, and I haven't had any crashes since that came out. But I'm sure it's faster than FF2, and looks marginally better. I'm too lazy to download RC2, so I'll just wait for the real thing.
apparently mozilla's having a worldwide download day for when full version of firefox 3 releases aand they're taking pledges
I will use FF3 when it is completely stable since i don't find any reason to change FF2 at the moment
I assume you can download FF3 without actually installing it.
Yes, portable versions.
