Just downloaded Firefox 3 (Grand Paradiso) for OS X today.
And man, it is so much better than FF2.
These are some of the obvious improvements:
- It gains the native look and feel of Cocoa app. (+9867542534)
- Plugins/Extensions are search able and installable via Tools menu. (+564758453)
- Most extensions are working without any serious hiccup, especially FireBug. (+564241)
- It’s Gecko 1.9 engine is noticeably faster. (Noticed via YSlow plugin & my eyes, I know, not very scientific)
Although, I have to add:
Sometimes, FireBug is confused about the existence of console object when I called console.log(‘something’).
- FF3 broke Guiness World Record of “Most downloaded software in 24 hours”, tallying up 8,002,530 unique downloads.
