    So I checked Firefox 8.0 beta today, and here's my conclusion:
    Horribly slow. Less screen space at the bar. Totaly not responsive. Sucks massive resources and makes my CPU fan spin like hell. Somehow keeps my HDD occupied for some wierd reason. What's up with this wierdish bar on the left? Why is there a search engine text form field when I can search with my adress bar? Why is there no most-visited and closed tabs page when I open a new tab?

    Seriously... This piece of ancient history is getting uninstalled.

      Maybe i just haven't installed Firefox on a clean profile in a while, but I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about here.

      Why is there a search engine text form field when I can search with my adress bar?
      So that you aren't locked in to Google, if you want to switch. Also, you're aware it only takes 5 seconds to remove, right?

      Why is there no most-visited and closed tabs page when I open a new tab?
      I don't understand why anyone would want that, but apparently FF is adding some content to the new tabs soon. I'm not 100% sure what's going there.

        Yes, it may shock you, but when IE was wreaking havoc and pure evil everyone, including me, absolutely loved the Corvette browser called Firefox.

        Fast forward to today and the world is now in awe of the Bugatti Veynron rendering engine called Webkit and most of us 'naive' people decided to upgrade.

        Don't you think that a free software Veynron beets the shit out of a Corvette rendering engine? Once and if this Webkit thing gets screwed up, then the right fork by the right people should kick in. But untill the next Big Thing happens, let's go with this opportunity. Let's not make it more difficult than it already is for web designers.

        Firefox was like many software once very awesome, but now that it has done its job, it should rest in a museum.
        Well if you think that the Corvette rendering engine has not been upgraded / improved since then to now, you are indeed naive.
        Besides, my girlfriend uses Chrome(Webkit) and likes it. But now and then she has to use Firefox instead due to incorrect rendering in Chrome (count facebook into that category).

          Conclusion is simple - don't use beta software.
