This optimized build is nearly 4 times faster than the current release of Firefox, and 10 times faster than IE 7; pretty cool!
I have yet to switch to Firefox 3, mostly because lots of my favorite extensions don’t yet work (including the ones I’ve written). There are a handful of changes that have to be made in order for extensions to work in the new environment, some of which aren’t exactly trivial. As we get closer to an actual release, I’ll do my best to update my extensions.
