    Firefox 3.0

    Anyone using the new Firefox 3.0 - I just downloaded it and installed and not impressed so far. Doesnt let my AVG 8 work with it and the url space is pretty rubbish now - putting far too much into it

    They claim it is fast. I have it but it does not load as fast as Avant. Not really impressed with Firefox at all. You'd think they would have made it work with AVG since so many people use it.

    Ooh a Firefox3 thread.

    I have it, and find the new address bar useful, as im always forgetting to bookmark webpages i visit

    Dont worry. He's pineing for his lickle troll buddy.

    Several FF3 threads already.

    The enhanced URL bar is indispensable... you'll come to realise that after using it for a while. Especially when you're trying to re-visit a site which you found 6 or 7 pages into a google search.

    We can test that. Go to google and type in "cow". Then choose a result from page 6. Then go elsewhere and type "cow" in the url bar and watch the url pop up below. Useful if you don't remember the URL or where you found the site.

    Rendering pages on Firefox 3 is much quicker.

    Firefox/AVG 8 on 11 rigs.....all working fine.

    Strange cos it disabled my AVG search security function. have also been crashed out twice in the last 10mins with (3times now just happened again) error reports being sent to mozilla. Thank goodness for their very very useful "restore previous session":roll:

    I find that Safari is the fastest one by miles, but its just a shame the fonts look so terrible.

    ff3 is quite quick - nicer interface but like all new products plug ins take time to become integrated
