What's New in Firefox 3

Firefox 3 is based on the new Gecko 1.9 Web rendering platform, which has been under development for the past 28 months and includes nearly 2 million lines of code changes, fixing more than 11,000 issues. Gecko 1.9 includes some major re-architecting for performance, stability, correctness, and code simplification and sustainability. Firefox 3 has been built on top of this new platform resulting in a more secure, easier to use, more personal product with a lot under the hood to offer website and Firefox add-on developers.

[improved in Beta 2!] Firefox 3 Beta 2 includes approximately 900 improvements over the previous beta, including fixes for stability, performance, memory usage, platform enhancements and user interface improvements. Many of these improvements were based on community feedback from the previous beta.

I use Firefox on the Mac they force me to use at work. I use it because Mac's browser, Safari, sucks out loud. I'll check out the new version.

IE works just fine on my computers at home.

I use both IE & Firefox. The biggest difference to me is that Firefox blocks about 99% of pop-ups while IE does about 70%.

Is Microsoft in bed with certain advertisers? I think so.
