Lordy - Firefox 3.5 - massive improvement
Using Firefox 3.5 and even on my quad core setup the speed boost and performance difference is very noticeable. Over half my add ons don't work at the moment but I'm not really that bothered.
Anyone else notice the better performance ?

Seems a little quicker than 3.0.11, can't say I notice a massive difference though.

3.5 soon coming to a Debian Sid near you! (in bodged testing, it rocks, even with old packaging around it)

The Private Browsing option [ if you use it ] makes a difference in browsing speed too.

presumably slower as no temp files?

I'm using it on Fedora 11 and I agree - a massive improvement.
I particularly like the native OGV movie support. no need for flash plugins - a decent native open video codec built into the browser !

I installed it this morning on my workstation (Intel Core2 Quad Q9300 @ 2.5GHz). I also noticed a great improvement in speed.
