Default Firefox 3.6. Is it worth upgrading?

Is the new Firefox 3.6 better than the older 3.5.8? I'm running XP Pro 32 bit on one machine and Win 7 64 bit on another. I don't want to update my self into problems.
Thanks
Jim

There's really no difference other than native HTML 5 support and some browser modding. You won't harm anything.

Your post says 'Firefox', but my eyes only see Opera <3

JK, I haven't noticed much difference between the two, but I only use FF when I run across an opera-hating page :D

For serial? Just upgrade, it takes 2 seconds and I haven't run into any problems upgrading to the latest version of FF, ever.

Sad to see FF go:

That gentle downward slope indicates Firefox might never reach 25 percent marketshare. Why? Because companies with money care about browsers now.
