firefox 3

Some of my friends have been raving about Firefox 3. If you haven't experienced Firefox cross platform, you may not realize that Firefox 2 is significantly faster on Windows than it is on Mac or Linux -- like enough of a difference to be palpable, like enough that my roommate actually ran Windows via VMWare on his Mac to run Firefox. But the same friends who've complained about this (some on Macs, some Linux) have noted that Firefox 3 seems to have figured out this speed problem, so I thought maybe you'd like to try it too.

(I haven't noticed any significant difference in speed yet, but I don't expect much out of the web.)
