    It wasn't working earlier today. They also didn't have the download right but they fixed it. I'm enjoying FF3! [​IMG]

    They say it has 15,000 improvements. I only see about 15. [​IMG]

    They also said it's the fastest browser yet and I'm quite sure Firefox 2 was quicker for me.

    Firefox 2 was a bit faster due to the FASTERFOX but there is going to be a Fasterfox 3 for Firefox3!

    And my firefox 3 runs fast and is very good!

    Oh that's good news. I like seeing how long it takes websites to load up in seconds. Firefox 3 seems to be just as quick as 2 for me since I got rid of media play in websites from the new Foxy Tunes add-on.

    Still, I don't know where they got the 15,000 improvements from. I'm guessing at least 14,000 were bug fixes?? But that's hell of a lot of bug fixes... which leaves 1000 new features? Nah can't be right. Maybe they just pulled the figure out of their ass to make it look good.... lol

    i disagree, with 2 you can still use plugins, on 3 you can't as they are not compatible, nor can u use custom themes either

    I feel like a total nerd cuz I just figured out how to get fasterfox 2.0 to work with firefox 3. It wasn't easy for someone of my n00b skills when it comes to stuff like that! [​IMG]

    But yeah it's working, wahoo!

    Like mentioned in pretty much every firefox 3 thread on this site, almost all plugins are compatible with FF 3.0.

    Now that its in final release, its only a matter of time before more people start developing themes (you could always make your own).
