    Good because my old Firefox has been freezing up lately. Sad to have to switch back to IE :(

    Been enjoying it since yesterday evening. The Weave Sync addon is just brilliant. Goes a little further than xmarks and syncs your tabs for when you get back from work. Very nice work in progress.

    Is it compatible with flash? Normally I have to wait for flash to be available to new variations of FF

    Ah! Thanks.
    But the "drag tabs to another window" was already available on previous versions.

    This is the final release. You've been using the RC or Beta versions.

    I'll give it a few weeks before I upgrade. Wanna make sure all my extensions and skins and such work. They're very important to me!

    I'll probably get this for work, as it's a new JS engine, but don't think I'll bother at home.
    IE8 and Chrome occasionally serve my browsing needs. (Dons flameproof suit)

    Been on 3.1 and then 3.5 in various beta iterations for probably at least six months now. I've been quite happy with it, and have had very few issues with stability or performance (most of those cleared up before the release candidate stage), but I guess the changes may not be as drastic to me, as I've seen then added in one-by-one in each version.

    Rendering is sloppier in 3.5, I find.
    It's prone to flickering/jumping with fixed-position backgrounds in CSS, which didn't happen in previous versions nor in IE8.

    On the upside, it now only supports the standards-compliant opacity option in CSS and ignores the IE and Netscape opacity filters.

    Hm, last time I tried a manual update, I lost all my settings and bookmarks. Going to wait for auto-update to get fixed.

    also Safari, if you don't mind Apple.

    3.5 is fantastic, i can now go back to single browser. although it'd be nice to be able to have private mode by window instead of by session. eg, 1 private mode window, the other normal mode.

    Installed it this morning, and am liking it.
    JS rendering is deffinately quicker. All the sites i've made still work (very good thing, that), and as such i am a happy camper.

    Any ideas why the installer is trying to force me to install to C:/ProgramData instead of C:/Program Files (x86) ??
