someone tell us if it's actually worth dLing. The other day i was websurfing a ton and i probably had a total of about 30-40 windows up and FF was eating 1.8Gigs of memory.

Why so much excitement for something that does the exact same thing as it's predecessor?

Im not trying to start an argument, although it'll probably appear that way, but...

I bet the "speed difference" is all mental, because I've used IE7, Safari, FF, Opera, etc., and they all load pages at about the same speeds. No browser from my experience is any faster than the next. I'm just sayin'... .004 secs speed difference is no difference at all, or whatever it is.

Secondly, in terms of eating up memory...if you've got a much older computer, I can understand the memory usage. But most people here have relatively new, powerful machines with 2 GB or more of memory. When you're browsing the internet, why wouldn't you want your memory to be used rather than just "sit there"? I don't understand that argument, nor do I understand what's so good about FF that people get so excited about. I mean I'll use it sometime on my Mac because I'm not a big fan of Safari's interface, but really...what's the big deal?

... and I guess this argument sits at the core of almost every fan boy based debate on the internet... I am now using FF3 and it does exactly for me what FF2 did... and most probably what any of the newer generation browsers would have done... but I still like it...

edit: and I was their the day it broke the record for downloads that didn't exist

I wouldn't slump myself in with "fanboy" but I do like FF better than IE7. Mainly becuase of the add-ons and security. I haven't had the security issues with FF that I did with IE7. I do let family members use my pc when I'm not home and that is normally where the virus's came from...go figure. This again will be argued to the end of days.

All I can say is the image gallery sites I am apart of load faster in FF than IE7. IE7 is a bit sluggish. I normally have 5-6 windows up at any given time. I run a socket 754 at work and a socket 939 at home. I really see no difference in speed, but of course both rigs are overclocked

To each their own with browsers. People will always argue which is better.

We are no longer friends for the bolded reason alone.

lolz, J/k

But seriously you have a point. I guess it's just one of those 'over-hyped' internet deals. I've noticed almost no difference between FF2 and FF3 save for the slight (visual) interface change. I still like FF over IE because of the user interface and general feel, regardless of memory usage. Keep in mind I used EI for years before switching to FF ... I just like it better.
