Firefox 4 beta

Anyone using this? Installed it yesterday. Damn fast. Heard they modified the way it handles Java to speed it up. Very happy with it so far. Somehow it uses more system resources but as mentioned is faster, kinda reminds me of Google Chrome speed.
Does have some room for improvement though. Yahoo! toolbar is not compatible with it and nor is the weather.com plug-in. Hopefully they work on a fix for that.

Yep, been using it for a few days now and overall I like it.

Hardware acceleration doesn't work for me however... it causes all text to become heavily pixelated.

Still getting used to not having a status bar at the bottom - that's about the only thing that bugs me.

View menu -> Status Bar -> it's a on/off checkmark.

And Firefox on Android is just okay... you're better off with Dolphin HD.

I've been using it on my macbook on and off. It does seem a bit faster than FF3, but still a touch off-pace from Opera or Safari. The upside is that there are a few sites that won't work right with either of those, but I've yet to find one that one run properly on FF.
