Mozilla Firefox 3 is out!

I've been using it since yesterday. Seems fine. Mouse gestures are still the greatest internet surfing advancement since the back button.

I like it a lot, had it running since yesterday, a most secure browser, that I highly recommend.

It's quite good...I've been using it for a few weeks now (downloaded one of the release candidates in late May), on both Leopard and Win XP Pro...very stable, seems to be less of a resource hog that 2.x was.

I've used one of the release candidates for a while, and save for some minor little glitches, I love it. The search bar is totally awesome.

SO much faster than version 2.x...hopefully the theme support will catch up now that it's GA.

only 2 problems i've had.

not all bookmarks were copied from 2. and i got stuck in zoom mode some how instead of scrolling.

other than that, it's good. wonder what they have planned for 3.1 .... workgroup jokes have been going around about it. hehe

The new interface is sweet. However, there's still no "create a new tab button" like in IE 7....that is the one and only thing I like about IE 7...but I still never use it.

Safari is not as fast. And firefox can do everything Safari can. Its a fact. :D

Theres a preview of it running on Vista.

Heard about it a couple of days ago. I'm downloading it now. Will report back once it's installed.

UPDATE: So far so good. I have to let it run for a while like I usually do IE, and that will tell me how efficient it is. But I like the new appearance. :)

+

1. Interface

2. Fast

3. Less Resource Hog

-

1. 45% of my addons are not compatible. Especially Tab Mix Plus, Tiny URL, Fasterfox (Don't need this too much though)

2. Interface

For those who missed the bookmarks, try the add-on Foxmarks (Registration Required), that helps you sync bookmarks on multiple computers.

I agree. I am forced to use IE at work (such as right now) and that's the only feature I like.

What do you mean? There's a New Tab button in Mozilla...always has been.

Right click on any of the existing buttons on top (Home, Back, Stop, etc.), click Customize, and then just drag the "New Tab" one from there onto your bar, wherever you want it.

I never knew that existed until a friend showed me...and New Tab is my most used button. IE is just a mess to use in comparison, and I only do for weird sites that don't 100% load or print correctly with Mozilla.

CNTRL+T adds a new tab also. I use Firefox pretty much 100% these days. At work, I use a Mac, but have a VM running XP since I need to use IE to access Mercury Quality Center (uses an Active X plugin), and I need to verify my code runs in IE as well as FF (it's funny---my development team all use Macs with Firefox to develop our web apps, but our corporate clients all use Windows with IE).

I've run into a few sites that have seem to have issues when you scroll and need repainting in Firefox...and Wachovia's site behaves very wierd--I enter my userid and password and it just keeps reloading (a Javascript issue, I think Foxmarks is great for synching my bookmarks between the Mac and my home XP laptop.

YES.

I have the new RealPlayer that lets me download internet videos, but it's not compatible with this new Firefox... :angry:

Patience, it just came out, so naturally it'll take a little time for ad-ons and programs to update accordingly.

That is where Beta Testing Phase comes into picture, where developers get chance to put their products in.
