it seems some persons did not like it, could reasons be briefed out.
For me:
1. Being a web developer, I need to use Firebug, web developer toolbars and some other essential extensions. These do not work with FF3.
2. My theme foxdie safari blue too does not work with it.

wow...just now got ff3 downloaded and installed...when started for first time most of my existing addons gets updated automatically except aardvark and gmail2. Anyway nightly tester tools comes into rescue to install them as well.
I dont see any performance difference, both seems to use same memory but ui has got some improvement with the default skin being completely revamped.

The box of URLs that dropsdown as you type into teh address bar was annoying for me. Its bloated and makes things difficult to find. I think I already hate such feature in Opera :razz:

Bond, Desi Bond!
FF3 when idle is taking 33Mb of RAM
FF3 when browsing thinkdigit forum is taking 42Mb of RAM
Opera 9.5. while browsing thinkdigit forum is taking 27Mb of RAM.


at this point of time, for me Opera has the upper hand.

FF3 looks like a disaster for my lappy. Opened 5 pages and

CPU: 99%
Memory: 140Mb

Waited for few minutes and the CPU usage never came down. I had to close it because I couldn't do anything else.

It's on IBM thinkpad T43 running Windows XP. 2Ghz processor and 1gig ram.
