Firefox 3.6 was released today. I can already tell that the user interface is snappier than 3.5. All my extensions were compatible (not too many changes from 3.5 to 3.6, mostly performance tuning). Easy and worthwhile upgrade in my opinion.

Thanks Chris, I'll give it a shot.

One thing I've noticed different is that it opens tabs next to the one from which the link is being followed, rather than placing it at the end of the list. I can probably get used to this, but it isn't the same behavior as before. (There's probably an about:config setting to change it too.)

I'll try it next week on my work machine. At home I use Safari primarily. Hopefully it'll restore closed windows more reliably.

Yeah, I've been using mostly Google Chrome these days. I was using Firefox primarily for this message board, but since putting together my new computer, I haven't installed Firefox.

You know, I still haven't really tried Chrome. I probably should, but I tend to be pretty conservative when it comes to computers.

I've been using Chrome almost exclusively for a few months. The lack of a proper bookmark manager in the Mac beta is a little anoying, but I get around that with a bookmark sync extension (Xmarks). Life got a lot better when I installed AdThwart, too.

There's only two things I use other browsers for: anything that needs Java (some admin tools at work), and editing pages on the wiki at work.
