This will be the last Firefox 2 vs. IE7 article. I promise.

I fully agree.
The only thing semi missing is spell checker (I use ViewSourceWith + gvim to spell check my posts in both Linux and Windows) and most of the other 2.0 features can be achieved using extensions. (TabMixPlus, TabCatalog, FlashGot, etc)

I most likely upgrade to 2.0 when Fedora's -devel RPMs are released (I'll
'back-port' them to FC5 and FC6), but at least for now, I'm pretty satisfied.

If all goes well, FC7 should include FF 3.0... Now that's looking like a major
upgrade!

I definitely prefer FF 1.5 with Tab Mix Plus over 2.0, as there is no way of making it work the way I want it. In that regard, 2.0 is a step back IMO. The versions of TMP I tried with 2.0 so far had issues.

... Give FF 2.0 (and TMP) some time.
In a couple of weeks both should be rock solid.
