    Do you think there was maybe a bit of pressure applied to release a beta after mozilla released their latest for Firefox 3..

    I have been using the beta 2 of FF3 since its release. The first beta crashed quite a few times on me. The second has been rock solid though. I have not experienced any issues. I love that remember passwords pops up at the top and you can save tabs on close. The quick bookmark I have not really used though. I am just not used to it.

    I'll grab IE8 on it's official release, I am not going to waste my time beta testing it though.

    i use IE7. no complaints. everything works. ill use Firefox when i need to test sth with different browsers.

    3~4 years ago i said the same thing about IE6. i can see myself saying the same thing on IE8 next year or sometime in the future.

    installed the IE8 beta, found myself always running it in IE7 mode so things will actually load or render properly. hotmail (or windows live mail as its now called i think) fails to load, and i've noticed google maps renders over the bar on the left-hand side. i really only use IE for hotmail, since i use Windows Live Messenger (aka MSN). other than that i use firebadger...haven't tried the FF3 beta, probably won't touch FF3 until it reaches release stage

    This problem is only for WinXP users! Vista has it's own update system.
    FIX ARTICLE!

    Can XP users just get SP3 already? I'm happy with FireFox 3 thank you.

    I've had no problems with FF3 beta, except I think it may be slightly more greedy with the cpu with a large number of tabs open than previous versions. Or a I just need a reformat xD

    Windows Live (hotmail) won't load

    Installed IE8 last night. I haven't had any rendering problems (yet), but, I did have to use Emulate IE7 mode to access my hotmail account this morning. Incredible (although not entirely unexpected I suppose) that MS's own sites won't work with their new browser. Oh well, it's a beta. :)
