    Read something about it on dailytech and it is supposed to be much faster than firefox.

    To be honest there are a few that are better than firefox but I keep using it for my extensions :)

    3.5 b4 has good plugin support btw :)

    Way fast. The good thing is that everything is built in, Opera does not need the extensions that firefox needs. This is pretty much my primary browser. What it can't do, I don't need.

    So I was going to try and use Nighty Tester Tool and install 3.5. When I ran the install it wanted to install into a new folder, other then where Firefox is install now.

    If I change it to where Firefox is install now, will it install it over it? or what?

    It was pretty easy honestly :)

    Having a browser that doesn't crash may not be high on your priority list but, I sort of prefer IE8 and Chrome just working and working FAST.

    I am really liking Opera 10 myself as well. It's a beta but blistering, especially once you've been a site a couple of times.

    Meh, I use FF at work, crashes at least 2 or 3 times a day. Ridiculous.

    Finally decided I would rather have the blazing speed and functionality of the other browsers so now I use IE8, Chrome and Opera interchangeably.

    Turbo mode on Opera is ridiculous :D
