Update Firefox 3.5
Okay I have been using Firefox 3.5 now for a couple of days now and I like what I see. It is snappy and has fast page loads while using Linux and a 54g wireless connection. Two of the three extensions that had reported as not compatible have updated. If you are new to Firefox or want to learn some new tricks, check out the tips and tricks page from Mozilla. There are tips for newbies to advanced users. I really like the built-in site checker. In my opinion this is a better implementation for checking websites than Microsoft's phishing filter. How many times have you closed a tab on accident? I know I do it all the time. With 3.5 you no longer have to go into your history list to re-open the site. Simply use the control + shift + t keys and the last closed tab re-opens. There are more new features than I have had time to try. Check out the tips page an see which ones you will like and use.
