    I said in the description that I was late.

    I only found it by accident and realised that no-one had posted it.
    I just tried it... Takes some getting used to...

    By late he meant someone already posted it.

    I depend a lot on Mouse Gestures (FireGestures add-on) so I won't be switching.

    I'm using the browser right now for my rss and so far as long as you use/know firefox's interface you can't get confused.

    my first impression in the browser is like a pop-up browser, it feels light. I'm hoping a full gtalk support on the browser in the near future.

    They need to have the ability to add add-ons and also live bookmarks but it is still fast comparatively
