I'm excited. U used beta's 1 and 2 quite a bit but was not quite stable enough, little bugs and extension/themes didn't work quite right. But the speed and memory improvement was great especially for those like me who can get multiple windows and lots of tabs open in short order.

Memory the nemesis...always! 2 has got out of hand so I use K-meleon mainly....even Seamonkey has a better footprint. I'm looking forward to a solution in 3.

2gb of memory takes care of most issues.

Never have aissue with mem and I leave ff up for days
