Default FireFox 3.6 Release!

Holy crap, it's fast!

I was able to migrate to the latest release without my addons mucking up on me. Right away, I noticed how fast everything was loading. It's a definite improvement!

You can grab it here at softpedia.

Cheers for the heads-up

The official release is at 9 PM PST. Still have a while to wait. This is the same build that was available on their FTP before it was blocked out.

Been using it since Beta. It's pretty good for Firefox.

Questions:

* Does it hog memory like previous versions?
* Is it faster than Chrome?
* Extension support?

*IE8 w/o extensions, 3 tabs open = 135 000K (it's spread out in multiple processes if you need to check)
FF w/ extensions and now Personas, same 3 tabs = 136 000K
- always been like that

* who cares about miliseconds?
* best, as always. I just need to wait for updates to the 3 addons I mentioned previously

I use GMail Checker.

Also, I use NoScript, AdBlock, FEBE and they have all been updated for a while now.

Memory, I haven't really used it that long today so I dunno.

Speed-wise, Chrome still seems faster in most cases for me.

Extensions, many of mine are currently broken/out-dated, but that happens almost every iteration.

I am personally sticking to Chrome as my primary browser simply because it remains the faster browser and the extension support keeps getting better and better.
