    I downloaded the linux version. It's a .tar.gz source which is fine but there's no config or make file. I can't install it without getting some weird libs first.

    So fuck firefox 3 till it's in the official repositories. =P

    Oh goodness... I don't really care for the way it looks... I like the old style better...

    Oh and I hate the automatic favorites search thing that drops down anytime you type anything into the address bar... I have tried to figure out how to disable it, but thus far have been unsuccessful... The first person who tells me how to disable this gets a trillion and a half cool points!

    On the other hand, I like how it manages to make all the websites look "bigger"...

    I don't care for it because I have soooo many favorites... Just typing in dealextreme.com brings up about ten sites... The funny thing is, is that I have DX in my faves and it didn't pick up that I was wanting that site until I reached the x.... I mean... It even searches the middle of words... (Like it brought up a site with eden in the title...) It is somewhat irritating to me...

    View > Toolbars > Customize > Use small icons

    Wow, while that was not the main thing I was looking for, it did make things looks quite a lot better on the style front!

    For that I award you 500 billion awesome points!

    Seriously, thanks for the tip, I like that much better!

    Thanks so much Urza! You just scored yourself a trillion and a half useless awesome points!

    But seriously, thanks a bunch!! Now I don't have to cringe every time I use the address bar!

    Shouldn't have expected anything outside of minor bug fixes, and possibly some small graphical changes.

    The small memory usage is awesome, too. In comparison to 2, I mean.

    And, I didn't lose any of my Bookmarks.
