Default Firefox 3.5 - The web is fast again.

Well I just installed FF 3.5 on my Mac and hallelujah she is a speedy browser! I know my biggest complaint with FF3 was it's speed so I am a happy camper. FF 3.5 is also sporting some new features that you can read up on at Mozilla.

I will upgrade my PC at home tonight... I hope the performance increase is just as noticeable there.

Hhhmmm - Well I like it a lot better than FF3.0

We will see how it does with the memory leaking issue.

For now though, I'm sticking with my chrome.

Argh. One of my favorite addons is incompatible. I hope there is an update soon.

Holy crap most of my add-ons were not compatible, as was my theme. Slimsearch not working is strange, as it has never had a compatibility issue when upgrading in the past.

Slimsearch (which has been around for years on FF) is like the Accelerators in IE8. I use Slimsearch extensively. If it is not updated soon I'll head over to IE8 a little more often. I prefer to use an updated browser.

Other than the various extension issues, no real problems so far. I would wait a few more days or even a week or two before updating if you have many extensions or themes you like. Perhaps I can see if my extensions will run anyways...

Got my Slimsearch add-on to install using "Nightly Tester Tools" add-on. Allows you to override incompatibility issues. Seems to be working fine now and FF 3.5 seems OK too with Slimsearch enabled.
