    Its fast and snappy. All my add ons now WORK with - via the nightly override add on. Seems really stable, no crashes thus far.

    My graphics are a tad rough though? Anyone else took the plunge into the future according to Mozilla?

    Never heard of it. I tried a few searches, only talk OF it, no downloads.

    I am using it right now actually. Pretty fast, but haven't done too much searching around online to see its true potential. Hasn't crashed on me yet, so that's good at least. I have only been searching MacRumors since I got it.

    just read about it on TUAW. Looks interesting, but Safari does everything I need, so why change??

    Found it here.

    Apparently it's just the name for the next update to firefox 3. However I must say it does feel a bit snappier, although all I've really tried with it is opening up pretty much all my bookmarks in tabs...

    For those who are using it right now, do you find the pictures and specifically image content on websites is a tad raw? i.e. not as smooth around the edges as in Firefox? Thats the only gripe for me right now.

    It seems to pick up on existing firefox settings as well.

    Yup. Me too. Hopefully the multi-touch support gets carried over to the next update of Firefox.

    I never feel a compelling reason to change browsers.


    Shoes? Sure.
    Hair colour? Rarely, but I wouldn't mind going with dark brown right now.
    Underpants? When it starts to rot and itch down there.

    Web browser? Meh.

    Just flip 'em around 180 degrees. Gives you at least another week or two.

    I would try it but since it is still in alpha, I'll probably just wait.

    Its nice. love the multi-touch, and its fast as hell. No bugs yet.

    A lot of my addons would not work though, but the multi-touch is worth the sacrifice
