Firefox 3.5

What an improvement! Significantly faster, much better browser now than version 3. Was using IE8 more as I had problems with Firefox3, but its good to have it back.

I do not really observe the speed. One thing I noticed, spell checker in google toolbar is now broken.

Anyways it is good to have an improved FF as some problems seem to have gone away.

3.5 certainly starts up a lot quicker than 3 on my system, and web pages do seem to render quicker.

All in all jolly good :mrgreen:

Before if I clicked a tab, I'd have to wait ages. Now tabbing is fast again.

Had a link sent to me for a developer plugin for Firefox, and you can check it out here. I've installed it but have yet to test it.

A much better add-on for Firefox is Firebug see information at the following URI https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/1843/

Firebug in Firefox is a must if you're doing any web development.
IE is just useless for debugging.

You can use Firebug in IE and all other browsers using Firebug Lite http://getfirebug.com/firebuglite Not as powerfull as the full Firebug but it is usefull for when things don't go right in IE.
