Default Anyone tested Firefox 3?

Today I put Firefox 3 into my Mac. What a speed!!! diyaudio.com is loaded with a 2 Mbit line in 1.7 seconds.

Windows Vista and IE7 6.7 seconds!

Besides that, Firefox looks really Macish. compared to the version 2 which like the ugly Windows version

The final beta version (5) should be available within the week. I'll give it a try.

Hi Per,

Are you sure, 6.7s?!
I've a 4Mb line, 1.5MHz P3, XP, IE6 and loads diyaudio in ~1s, about just as fast as FF2

Cheers.

It's possible that Vista is loading down a bit.

I've been using Beta Version 3.05b fro a few weeks now. Most of my favorite add-ons are not yet available (and the new version won't let you enable non-secure add-ons). But other than that it's often much faster than the old version. The Release Candidate should be available soon.

Default FF3

Hi,

I've just installed FF3 and indeed, it's much faster.

Cheers.

Default My first taste of Firefox 3

I haven't been following Firefox development as much as I probably should, but I was nicely surprised to have version 3 as the default browser in the newest Ubuntu 8.04 Linux distro. Very nice, fast and stable. Oh, and the browser is too.
