    Default Firefox 3.5 released



    Yep. It's here. I already upgraded and as far as I can see, it's a bit faster. According to the changelog, it's way more then that...

    Don't get your hopes up too much. For me, the speed hasn't been improved too much. Although, I haven't applied the "about:config" hacks yet, so we'll see.

    I removed that tab thing, so it only appears when I have multiple tabs open.
    Tools->settings->tabs-> and uncheck the box that say always show tab field or something like that.

    That doesn't change it it's still the little + to add a tab . Plus considering how many themes are actually compatible with this new version. Most themes weren't even compatible with version 3. The only themes that I have that actually work are NASA Night Launch, aluminum, and of course the default one.

    Yeah that's what I ended up doing, but I usually have more than one tab open so it doesn't really make a difference.
