I simply love the new Firefox! It now has an inspection option just like Chrome, and there's more space on the page like Google Chrome offers.

It's still pretty fast, as well.
I don't really like to go into detail on things, but I love it compared to Firefox 3.

I love the new look to things on Firefox as well. The only thing that bugs me, is that I cannot seem to disable the Status Bar. :/

Download here
Take a look here

Edit: Just figured out how to disable the Status Bar.
You have to click on the Firefox Menu button. The orange button on the top left part of the screen and click on Customize then click Menu Bar. Then you'll have the standard Firefox Menu bar that shows File - Tools - etc..

Then click View > Uncheck Status Bar

Then just click View > Toolbars and Check Menu Bar again if you liked the other Menu Bar.

Looks like I'm using Chrome, honestly.

I'll give it a go on full release, but I can't imagine it being my main browser. Chrome is just too fast.

You honestly don't even have to. I don't mean to force anyone to use this product.

The only thing I really like about the new Firefox is the makeover and the change to the menu bar, etc.
I really think, though, that if you give it a try, even right now, you'll see a huge speed improvement.

FireFox 4 will be a heck of a lot faster than 3, but Chrome is just wicked fast when it comes to rendering javascript. And in today's "social networking world", where even your grandma uses ajax for her dog's web page, it's what you need. Still, I think the new look is pretty sleek - but where the hell did the bookmarks go? I need a one-click bookmarks bar in the header of the browser.

The bookmarks bar is to the left of 'Feedback' and the one-click 'bookmark this' button, is the star in the far right of the address bar.

I don't doubt it's faster. 3 is a clunky piece of QWERTY on my machine for some reason and I hate how much room 3 takes up with its interface.

Again, I'm going to try it out when it's out fully, but I can't imagine it taking over Chrome. I'm a Google fanboy, too. They're one of the best corporations around in my opinion.

I just downloaded Opera, and it seems like one of them copied the header design. It's like exactly the same.

I think I'll probably stick with 3 simply because I can't be arsed to upgrade. Might do when the full release is out though.

I think this line is gonna be my new signature, mwhaha. So true. Yea, I'm a "Browse the web, Chrome Fast." user too, firefox 4.0 beta3 for me is quite slow... of coarse i don't know the average speed that browser should be so i can't really tell, but what i can tell is that even opera is faster then firefox b3 for me.

It's not the fastest yet, but I hope when the full release comes out, it will be.
Firefox 2 was the fastest web browser around when it came out, and I think it is still really fast.
It beats the crap out of Firefox 3 in speed.

And Flame, it's always good to upgrade your browser because of security issues and all of that junk.

That's why I probably will when a stable version is out, but I don't see a beta being the most stable thing out there to be honest ;)

Beta is nice to try, to see what you're getting yourself into.
Plus, you can inform Firefox what isn't so hot in the new browser, or what is good, and they should keep.

I'll be honest, I made the switch to Chrome just a few days ago cause of some Ajax-intensive sites. My biggest beaf is lack of themes. Just awful lol And the developer addons aren't all that great either. So most likely when FF4 hits stable, I'll walk back to the mozilla side.

The themes seem a little insignificant to me. There's almost nothing to customize :P

My beef is still downloads being forced to save and not open.

I think you can choose whether to Save or Open, I don't know. :/

Anyway, Firefox 4 is fast as QWERTY on my friends computer.
