Firefox 3

I'm using the beta version of Firefox 3. It's about the same as FF2 except that Javascript code seems to run much faster. Gmail, for example, loads much more quickly and is more responsive than it was with Firefox 2. Other highlights and lowlights:

  • Lowlight: No Google Toolbar yet. I miss autofill.
  • Lowlight: Ctrl-K (Windows) takes me to for search, rather than to the Google Toolbar search bar (no Google toolbar yet). Ctrl-K is thus side-effecting, which is a real pain if you hit it accidentally in a tab.
  • Highlight: AJAX sites are much faster.
  • Highlight: resizing the display (Ctrl-+) makes both text and images bigger. Page layouts remain about correct now whereas before you'd get the same 200px wide body text column even with 36pt body text.
