Improved tools for controlling your private data, including a Private Browsing Mode.
Better web application performance using the new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine.
The ability to share your location with websites using Location Aware Browsing. (Try it here!)
Support for native JSON, and web worker threads.
Improvements to the Gecko layout engine, including speculative parsing for faster content rendering.

I updated overnight last night, haven't had a chance to run it yet though. Looks very similar to one of teh beta releases I ran. With the private browsing and the (+) button to open new tabs, which I like a lot. Will give it a go tonight.

I've got it up and running on my main pc, still tweaking it a little bit. Biggest disappointment was losing my theme. Hopefully they patch it so i can get it back. As of yet, it's not compatible with the 3.5 version. :hop mad:

They should have an undated patch for you soon, 7th. I'm still getting used to it....I switch between opera and firefox to get used to both.

I'm not noticing a big difference, which for me is a good thing. lol
So far appears very stable, time will tell.

If this is a final build, why didnt FF ask me to upgrade? Which it does everytime FF makes a new fart! But a whole new stable version and it does not ask me to update? I am currently running 3.0.11

Not sure of the reason for that Homesick, I usually keep the auto updates turned off and just do it manually. So I wasn't aware of this problem. Strange.

I don't blame you for not wanting to update if everything you are using is not supported by the latest version, however there have been quiet a few security issues addressed in these updates. It might be something that you wish to look into more by reading the release notes and weigh the good with the bad.

Yep, I'm not going to update just yet as my current theme isn't supported by Firefox 3, what a shame! :rolleyes:

My theme isn't either, so i'm running a different one for the time being. Other than that, i like it just fine. Seems stable thus far, and as always: faster than IE. lol
