Mozilla & Gecko clones "While Firefox 2 used less memory than it's predecessor, Firefox 1.5, we intentionally restricted the number of changes to the Gecko platform (Gecko 1.8.1 was only slightly different than Gecko 1.8) on which Firefox was built. However, while the majority of people were working on Firefox 2/Gecko 1.8.1, others of us were already ripping into the platform that Firefox 3 was to be built on: Gecko 1.9. We've made more significant changes to the platform than I can count, including many to reduce our memory footprint. The result has been dramatic."

I like Firefox 3

I like the speed and I even like the new location bar. I haven't noticed it getting between me and the pages I want at all. Usually three keypresses are more than enough to bring up the page I want.
The only thing I don't like about Firefox3 is its XP theme. Hoping to get winestripe for FF3 soon. But I used to do the same with FF2, so nothing changed.
