To be honest, I’m not that excited about this new firefox 3 release compared to Opera 9.5. Most of the new features mentioned are not really new anyway. Perhaps the best improvement was in performance (firefox 2 can be a real memory hog) as firefox 3 now consumes less memory and memory management is executed more efficiently.
Not all firefox extensions are compatible with firefox 3 yet, and until the extensions are updated, you can use this tip here to make old extensions work with firefox 3.
Oh, I love their new web design too!
