I'm psyched, are you?
The whole preview whing is sort of misleading, a LOT of open source software has releases labeled as such. But, yes I'm looking forward to the final release, there are a few things they could improve on imo.

  • Page time outs: some slower loading pages time out in Ffox, when they don't in IE.
  • Better support for QuickTime and PDFs: QT movies make the browser sluggish at times, Ffox has the same problem rendering PDFs as IE
  • Better RSS (Live Bookmark) support: I'd like to see a ticker style toolbar.
  • Built in tab prefrences: I know there is an extension and I use it, but imo it should be built in.
  • Large/multiple animated .gifs; Ffos lags when you load a page with them

That's all I can think about right now. ♥ Firefox.

I'll be glad once the official version is out. I just hope they don't have any bugs creep into the release.

A few people I know are holding off until it's official to switch over to it. I'm getting really tired of them complaining about how bad IE is, yet not wanting to run "beta" browsers.

What would make me genuinely happy is when Thunderbird is feature-complete enough to be able to replace Outlook. Due to configuration issues at work, I'm forced to use Outlook. :(

I'm downgrading until all of my extensions work.

Woah, what is all that; how do you see your extensions? I am still pretty new to Firefox; I got it about a month ago.
