One of the first things I noticed when I upgraded was the loading times, they are near instantaneous, often loading faster than the small 2kb layout images. Its too bad that even though FF3 is 5x faster, OCN is 10x slower right now.
HAhaha, so true, thanks for the info to the OP, and thanks for the link Murclocke.

Well, I know that with FF2 you can change a setting in the about:config file that allows you to click the middle mouse button/scroll wheel anywhere in the scroll bar and the page will go to that spot instantly -- no waiting for scrolling involved- and I assume you would be allowed to do this with FF3 as well. So if you are willing to use (or have) the middle mouse button to do this then, I would think you are good to go.

Pretty sure it did. I've never been affected by a memory leak in FF2 anyway
Dude, you can jump-to-here with the middle-click.

And this seems to be the default, so I don't think you need to mess with about:config either.

With FF3? Cause I know (or I'm fairly certain at least) that with FF2 you need to change the about:config to enable this.

Ah-ha! They did fix jump-to-here!

Now I only need to get my old skin back, and I'll love this...

Btw, I haven't noticed any real "speed boost." Pages seem to render all at one time, and that's cool, though.
