I updated Firefox to 3.5 and find it much faster. There were some extension issues, but they were minor. Any other reviews?

I've just switched over the Google Chrome, It's faster then Firefox, but doesn't have the e-mail handling capability of firefox.. But it comes close..

Google Chrome for Linux is lightening quick and doesn't use half the resources of FF 3.5. I found that FF3.5 would steadily consume more and more CPU and RAM

Downloading now, I was still on 3.0.11 on my main machine and it's always been fast and stable and I can't live without Adblock Plus.

I just installed it yesterday. It seems to take a bit longer to load for me, but once up, is noticeably faster browsing. No problems to report, as I haven't used it much yet.

I got it - no difference in browsing speed for me, strangely.

I'm a multi-tab user (currently got 16 open), and it's using 200 MB of RAM, according to the task manager.

I'm with Musicman on this one. FF 3.5 just used more and more resources on my system.

I agree, it is a memory hog. If one is just browsing the web, and not using other memory intensive programs (ie: Photoshop) then it is really not a problem.

To give up Adblock for a bit of speed isn't worth it to me. But I really do like Google Chromes' interface, very slick and clean. I have also messed around with Opera and their new Opera Unite service, very interesting stuff.

I've been using FF3.5 for a while now. It's not my primary browser, I use it for stuff that doesn't work (properly) in Konqueror, and also to keep a few things separated.

I think it's quite nice, my only extension, the user-agent-switching-thingy, didn't work at the beginning, but now it was updated and works too.

I've got a installation of Opera, hardly ever see it. Didn't look into Chrome yet. Anyway, my browser is Konqueror.

@Pastor Frank - I have Opera on both windows and linux pcs, and I love the speed as well. Speaking about Opera 10 and Opera Unite, I saw this article on PCWorld the other day. Since Opera Unite allows you to run a Web server from your desktop, criminals will soon be exploiting this feature, to spread malicious software on yor PC and turn your PC into a zombie bot for the botmasters. I think I'll avoid Opera 10 for awhile. http://www.pcworld.com/article/167070/could_unite_be_a_botmasters_best_friend.html

I'm too a FF lover mostly bcause of the extension, beside of adblock I use flashblock - no annoying flash intros any more, and e.g. ImgLikeOpera. (I am on a relativly slow connection)

Chrome - there exist a version without data collecting, called Iron Browser.

Opera (last beta) has glitches with some pages on my system, so I don't open it often.

Great tip, me likes ! Lean, clean, mean and fast. I 've got it as my new default browser now. FF 3.5 wasn't doing it for me, crashed numerous times, and eating 50% CPU after it crased.

Musicman is right. FF 3.5 has a memory leak problem.

^^It always has unfortunately, and there are some rather annoying security implications. Obviously Mozilla aren't sure of the meaning of opt in

No memory problem on this end, running on Win7RC or Ubuntu 9.04. Opera uses considerably more memory on both, and Chrome uses just slightly less.

^^ And that location thing still is 'technically' opt-in since you do give each site permission before it sends the location data. Kind of a stupid feature though.

Just switched to Google Chrome, after many years of Firefoxing. I find GC faster and not eating so much memory. And in FF 3.5 I noticed a lag between my actions and the browser's response. (well, I was having around 25 tabs open and 400 Mb taken by FF); It was annoying, I don't particulary like Opera so I tried Google Chrome. So far, I LIKE IT! No lag (same number of tabs) and less used memory.

FF 3.5 seems to have some serious issues. The problem I posted above is not just a memory leak, it just crashes every now and then, and afterwards firefox.exe takes 100% CPU on one core. Seems to be a known problem that has not been addressed yet AFAICT.

ETA: Here's an extensive overview of problematic extensions for FF. They also describe the symptoms. In my case it might well have been Copernic desktop search being the culprit.
