I found IE7 to be bloated rubbish in comparison to the older version.

Wow Firefox must be better than IE if you`ve got to start messing with the code to get it working properly.

It's 'working properly', but if you don't like how it looks like or how it does certain things you can change it. Try that with IE

I don't know what websites you lot look at but version 3 is generally faster for me than 2.

In fact the only time it slows down is when noscript blocks something the shitty website I'm looking at won't do anything until the crappy script is allowed to run.

No problems here...running it on my Mac, it's as fast as FF2 was with the fasterfox addon so I'm very pleased

Have fiddled so much with the new functions yet...

I don`t care what it looks like and IE does what i want it to do, open web pages. You Firefox users are just a bunch of fiddlers with too much time on your hands.

IE is outdated since version 6, newer versions are a mess. Maybe good enough for some porno downloads.

Yes, I hear that arguments many times
Firefox and it's extensions aren't that difficult to setup nor require extreme long configuration times.
Well, OK, if you're doing it for the first time, it may be about as long as setting up your very first clean Opera setup... multiplied by the amount of extensions
But, once you *do* set it up, once everything works as you like, once - those settings are easly saveable with many safe backup options (hd, google mail account, etc.) there's a huge possibility you're never have to do it again.

I agree, it does resemble Internet Explorer too much, and now doesn't look or feel like Firefox at all. Feels like a generic browser, really.

I love FF3. Looks good, works great. No idea why people moaning. Opera 9.5 came out a couple of weeks ago and it was absolutely rubbish. So rubbish that 1 week later you have a new beta out already. FF3 is a great improvement over FF2 and a real joy to use. Plus, Glasser is a hell of an add-on!
