Attention Geeks: Who's rockin Firefox 4?

I just downloaded it yesterday. So far - I love it!

First and foremost:
It's faster, noticeably. Big improvement!

Second:
I like the cleaned-up and improved interface.
It's cleaned up nicely, yet still familiar enough to not have to re-learn.
However I still do prefer the tabs BELOW the address bar, so I'm glad there's the option for that.

My only complaint is when you set the tabs below the address bar (and you're using the Firefox button with no Menu Bar) then the title bar is left blank - without even putting the normal page title stuff in there.
Fortunately, there's a add-on that does this, but this should be a standard feature.

Overall, I like it a lot.
Good improvement, and a worthwhile upgrade!

2001 Camaro Z28 H/C/I LH6 A4 3.42

Yep, got FF4 here.
The new layout kinda threw me for a loop..but I like it.
One MAJOR bonus..the old FF would always lock up when I started it for the first time when booted up. This one doesn't.

I miss having the bar on the bottom with my plug-in information, though.

Open-source web browser. It took me a while to get used to it..there are TONS of free add-ons and plugins. I have a ad blocker and a add-on that keeps scripts from running on websites. I haven't had a malware or virus issue in over a year now.

I also use their E-mail client.

I'll be rockin' Firefox 4 as soon as I have the computer connected to the internet again. Until then, I'm waiting for Firefox for Android to move out of the Beta stage. For now, I'm using Dolphin mobile browser (also from Mozzilla).
