    Guess not, since the whole UI is different. I hope AdBlock+ get's ported to FF4 fast tho...

    Old themes still work, but there seems to be a bug in that when another theme is applied the minimize, maximize and close buttons disappear. AdBlock+ is already updated, I'm using it now! [​IMG]

    Another thing, multiple tabs seem to show as multiple windows on the Win7 taskbar.

    That's a "feature".
    I heard some opera fanboy in my class talking about that really proud.

    Correct me if I'm wrong tho.

    EDIT:
    Damn, it IS really fast compared to FF3!

    SO downloading this. I wonder how it will fare in Acid3 tests. I'll report later.

    EDIT: It scored a nice 97! [​IMG] Also seems a lot faster.

    Actually, it reminds me more of the Opera design, than the Chrome's one.

    Really? I haven't used Opera in a while... I just think it seems very similar to Chrome: Tabs on top, address bar with navigation buttons below. Seems like a 1:1 replica of Chrome to me. If it really is faster though I may have to check it out. The main reason I switched to Google Chrome was because of how much faster it started vs. IE or Firefox 3.
