Mozilla & Gecko clones After a number of delays, Mozilla today released version 3.6 of the successful Firefox web browser. It brings with it numerous improvements and new features, and of course speed improvements are welcomed, too.

All in all, it's the kind of upgrade I like: Lots of improvements under the hood, and very little disruption.

I totally agree on this point. Firefox 3 gave us the so-called "awesome" bar which forced me to start compiling a long list of bookmarks just for it to work as expected, and a major annoyance in the way the Back/Forward buttons work when right-clicking them (which still confuses and annoys me to this day). If I right-click the Back button, I should get a list of the pages I visited before the one I'm on--not a confusing list of those plus the ones I was at after the current one.

This update seems to be just small but useful updates; no "WTF?" type changes. I'm about to try it out in wine, and might update my main version to 3.6.

Edit: Just tried it. I'm surprised there's no separate "Personas" section of the add-ons window. Instead, they're all lumped in the "Themes" section with all the traditional themes. Weird... I'm sure people who have a collection of regular themes and personas will eventually see the downfalls of this...

Why do you need a long list of bookmarks to make awesomebar behave like you want? I have several websites which I visit regularly that are not bookmarked, and after using awesomebar for a few times it lists those sites on top. Isn't that the behavior you want?
