Mozilla & Gecko clones I've seen superlative after superlative concerning the release of Firefox 3.0, and in all honesty, it is making my stomach ache. Yes, Firefox 3.0 is a great release. It has a slicker interface (the UI on Vista looks quite pretty) and the use of native widgets in Linux is a very, very welcome addition. On top of that, it actually delivers what I was craving for the most from my favourite Windows web browser: much improved performance. But does Firefox 3.0 change the web, or alter the way we use the intertubes?

I upgraded and all that and I think its pretty nice update. Last night I was surprised to see it being advertised on the Tokyo Yamanote metro line carriage monitors. FF must be popular in Japan

From what I've been told, it's probably the most used browser over there.... dunno for sure, though.

I'm still using the Beta-5 that came with the recent version of Ubuntu. So far, no problems. Only had one crash when I had Flash videos loading on 6 different tabs.

The default fonts on Linux suck, though.... always the first thing I change.
