New version of Firefox is out today (3.6)
I've been playing around with their "personas" (think low-fat, instant themes), and I'm sure the novelty will eventually wear off. For now, it's an interesting change of scenery. Haven't delved into any other new features yet (if there are any). Happy downloading!
Is it faster than 3.5?
That's crazy that you posted that, I've been a supporter of Firefox since it was Phoenix...but I just five minutes ago decided to finally give Google's Chrome (well Chromium) a go.
I'd have to second elija's question, is it much faster? Firefox had been becoming sluggish for me the past year or so.
I'm probably not the person to ask, since I haven't noticed any appeciable lag or sluggishness in Firefox as of late. Now, this is on my work XP machine. I have had issues with the Ubuntu version of Firefox slowing down to a near crawl on sites like IMDB.
I didn't mean to imply that I find Firefox slow. Quite the contrary in fact, 3.5 is significantly faster than prior versions both on the Win XP machine at work and the *buntu / slackware / what-ever-the-hell-other-distro-i'm-trying-today boxes at home.
Well, I may be a few days behind here, but I finally got around to installing 3.6, and I gotta say I've actually noticed quite an improvement in speed.
It seems a lot snappier to me.

I've not done any actual speed tests to verify, but 3.6 feels snappier in performance to me as well.oz

Can I ask a really silly question? Is FF3.6 now available in the updates or do I have to add the repository to get access to it? I'm still using Jaunty with FF3.1 right now.
