Truly an upgrade...

I took some time to download the much-anticipated new version of Firefox - my web browser. At least the Mac version is faster, easier and more user friendly. I haven't had much time to fool around with it a lot, but it seems like a natural extension of the earlier software, only more powerful.
Instead, they built a better history function: You don't have to remember a site's address; you have to recall only its title -- or just a word or two of it. As you start typing, Firefox will present a list of all the sites that match, then narrow that list as you continue.

If, however, you're a bookmark-tending type, Firefox 3 can help you make more sense of your Web favorites. You can tag them for easier reference, then sort through to see which ones you visit most and which ones collect dust.

Firefox 3 also brings a performance upgrade. Older releases could hog memory over time, eventually forcing a browser restart. Firefox 3 needs a little less memory and doesn't keep nibbling away at your computer's resources over the day. [More]
