Mozilla & Gecko clones As was anticipated, the boys and girls at Mozilla have released the final build of Firefox 3.5 today. Firefox 3.5 - originally supposed to be 3.1 - comes with many welcome improvements, chief among which is support for HTML5 audio and video tags.

Firefox 3.5 is just fine. It quickly handles the web sites I use and it has the extensions I want.

When Google Chrome and Apple Safari get to that point, let's be concerned about JavaScript speed, but there is much, much more to a browser than raw speed. I save more milliseconds by having extensions to help me than I could from executing benchmarks.

Do either Chrome or Safari have any adblock technologies with auto-updating blacklists? If not, I consider them to be pretty much unusable, no matter how fast their javascript is.

You might want to check the "Safari Adblock" plugin (Mac only though):

Not sure if it auto-updates the blacklists but I think so.

"Pimp My Safari" has a bunch of plugins for Safari:

Still my everyday browser is Firefox. I use Privoxy chained with Squid for added speed and security/privacy. All my web connections go through them, not just the browsers.

Just switched and All-in-One Gestures doesn't work with the new version. The Fire-Gestures doesn't support diagonals. I'm thinking about switching back to 3.0
