As you probably noticed, FireFox v4 is now up for download.
Pretty much all add-ons from v3 are compatible with this version, along with the personas Smile

There's also a new feature called Sync apparently. Register, Enter your Sync code and access your settings (bookmarks, history etc.) from any machine where you log in to Sync with the key.

How I learned about it? I thought it was the Refresh button that I had to drag onto my menu bar Razz Imagine my suprise when I was asked to make an account while still thinking it was the refresh page feature..

*cough*

Hmm... the Sync option sounds interesting.

I've been using Chrome extensively for a while now. But, I'll give FF4 a shot. I'll post my... "review" here once I've used it.

Yeah the new layout was kind of awkward at the beginning <.<

I used it since the first public beta was released and the layout switched from time to time I allways was like D: where the heck did the refresh and home button go!!!!!! Very Happy

You can easily change back the tabs to their usual place THANKS GOD...

even if I've used FF4 for a month now, I havent realized anything special with it except that they moved the UI around a bit....

though that sync sound REALLY interessting

The new tabs were nothing new for me at all. I use Opera, and the new FireFox really looks VERY similar to Opera. (some say it's just a total ripoff, but I'm not going to give my opinion on that Wink ) The fact that it's so similar is a plus for me because I'm used to it. Opera is still my favorite, but I do use firefox or chrome sometimes. Internet explorer is also still on here, but is only being used to test web designs for browser compatibility. The new IE is a big improvement though to former versions.

Sync is also nice. I didn't set it up for firefox yet, but I'm guessing it's also similar to what opera has for it.

I'm pretty happy with My current version of FireFox. Would those of you who've made the switch chime in to say rather you prefer it pre or post update?

hmm, I dont recognize that UI, mine is as the old one after I switched the tabs back to its original place.
but except that, I love the new FF4 now...

Man, I remember when I updated to FF2...

Being a FireFox v3.x user prior this update, I'd say upgrading is worth it.
It looks alot better in my opinion, and is said to be 10x faster than v3.x

And unless you play S4League, updates usually are a good thing.
