    IF anybody does try it out? Please, give us feedback!

    See subject-line/title...

    :)

    * I am curious as the next guy, but tend to avoid beta-wares...

    (I am MOSTLY curious in how longtime fans of FireFox think of it & what changes are in it they like/dislike... Opera user more here, but I do use FireFox @ times as well).

    APK

    P.S.=> Me = coward & all that I guess, just afraid of "toasting" a good setup is all (and, I've had it happen, more w/ drivers than Ring3/RPL3/usermode apps, but it can happen)... apk

    Well, after a little bit of use I have to say...I don't really see that much difference, though I am not a firefox user, and only really use it every once in a while. I do have to say it does seem a noticeably faster then the old version though, even in start times. It seems to start just as fast as Opera an IE now from a cold start.

    Ah, you said the "magic word":

    F A S T E R!

    APK

    P.S.=> Thanks for the feedback... I'm surprised more of the FireFox'ers here (which is the majority, Jimmy 2004 proved this to me, more-or-less, in a poll here) haven't given it a go! apk

    thanks alec good guide im using it theirs not alot of support for my themes and such but it loads pages faster than b4 by a lil iv noticed it also is picking up my spelling errors im not sure what to think of that as that probably means that this beta is also taking up more system resources than the last one meaning that at times using it may make the system sluggish when multitasking....hmmm i guess it has its pro's and cons ill keep seeing whats up and give updates if need be.
