I have been running it for a while (beta versions) in Ubuntu. It runs well, but I would stick with 2 for a while until the add-on authors update.

Nothing too special, as in it should butter your toast?

Seems that on my comps, webpages are loading faster than in ver. 2.

I like the new skin tho.

I downloaded the update last night at home...ugh... I'm kinda regretting it.

Page loading seems slower to me, and I hate how the history now comes up as a seperate window and doesn't seem to list the visit by days....

And I hate the format on the drop downs of the address bar when you type the first couple letters of a url....For example when I type in "ho" for homebrewtalk, instead of the usual list of visited urls (like "http://www.homebrewtalk.com/usercp") it comes up as 2 lines of text for each, the first is a sentence from that page, and then the url address...

I'm not sure I'm liking it at all...I'm going to give it a few days to get used to it, but I am wondering if I can revert to version 2 easily.Anyone know?

I never dreamed Firefox would let me down....I hope it's not gonna be like microsoft where the new version of something is worse than the previous one.

Well I'm running the beta at home, I can't get it here at work...stupid firewalls. I'm really digging it. My SWMBO hates firefox, and I don't know why. I love how I can make my homepage everything I need to know at a glance. For her it's more of the apperiance then anything I guess. BUt I'm loving it!
