Is anyone currently using Gran Paradisio under Vista?

I am seriously contemplating slapping this on my home system when I get back home tonight but I wanted to see if anyone else is using this bugger :)

Respond and if you have pics, post them please.

Thanks much :)

So anyways, have had it up and running for a few days. Not all my extensions work but enough work that it's made me relatively happy :)

The performance is surprisingly good and the FF team has really tried to emulate the overall appearance and feel of IE7 (I guess those microsoft lads did get something right afterall).

The default tabbed browser feel is superior in IE STILL. A really glaring issue that I think the Mozilla team is working on (based on the documentation).

It is fast, like I said, but the performance is a little uneven. Currently it does use a little less memory than FF2, however it is also running fewer extensions.

Will keep working with it and post as things crop up.

If you really want to get as close to the IE 7 look as possible, install the Vista-aero theme. It's very well done, and even emulates one of your favorite IE features - the floating/dockable Favorites Center. ;)

Not sure if it's compatible with Gran Paradiso yet, but give it a try.

I am using it. Remember, from my desktop screenies :D You sort of adopted one of those that I have been using for a while now :)

It works with GP but not well. It introduces a blank bar that I cannot remove.

How's the latest beta 3 looking in Vista then, I just updated on the Mac and it looks a million times better. It really fits with the OS now.

Not tried FF3 yet, but have been using 2 alot recently so my cookies don't get messed up between this site and the test.

It works pretty decent.

There are still some minor quibbles with the extensions I choose to use, but it's nothing I can't work around.

My biggest pet peeves are the bookmarks organizer which I still think is pants compared to the simplicity of IE7 and the speed is not really much different. But most glaring of all, it looks like pants on Vista, it really does.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
