I like the way it loads pages better. I've never used add ons for other browsers but some of these seem nice. I like the idea of read it later, especially that I can use it on my phone when I don't have an internet connection.

I should probably check it out...but with my previous experiences with firefox, it'd take a lot for me to ditch chrome.

I'm digging it but it doesn't make much sense to have the tabs way up on the top and the shortcuts where the tabs used to be. Just seems weird.

My biggest problem so far also. I know it's a major overhaul but why they did they feel like changing the interface just for the hell of it? I think it gets some getting used to like anything new.

Looks like I need to try it out as well. I've been a Chrome user for months and I find it impossible to go back to any other browser at the moment.

It's going good for me so far. Missing a few add-ons but it seems pretty fast.

I don't know about PC, but on Mac, if you right click on an area near the tabs, you can unselect the Tabs On Top option for those of you whining about that interface change...

Go to View -> Toolbars and uncheck "Tabs On Top" if you have the menu bar showing. If you don't, click on the Firefox down arrow in the upper left and select options, then uncheck "Tabs on Top". Or, click on an empty tab area, and uncheck "Tabs on Top".

Why Internet Explorer will survive and Firefox won't
...
Mozilla is stuck in 2005. And that’s why the core of Internet Explorer will still be around in five years when Firefox will have, at best, a loyal cult following.
I am a FF 4.0 user, but the guy has sound arguments.
