    Still using it.
    It's not perfect, but the homepage is epic.
    As is being able to drag tabs off to a new window.

    I like it. I'm also running an IE8 beta, but they haven't fixed the memory hole problem.

    There is absolutely no reason for a browser left open with only two tabs should consume 100+MB of RAM.

    You can drag tabs off to a new window in Opera, and the homepage is a rip of Operas speed launch, but it's fast to launch and load pages, so if I don't need many (read: any) features i'll use that

    You're kidding, right? They spent plenty on TV, but 99% of the online discussion was fanboy reacharounds and trolls being trolls. The thing has been getting nonstop discussions online since six months before the first one was even announced.

    I like it, few issues with the home button, plus I have not worked out a way, there might not be one, to remove website from your most visited.

    It is nice though, and looks good in Vista I feel.

    I have the same concern about most visited. I need to get rid of places from before I retired. Working on Vista also.
