Firefox 3 - so far sooooooooooooooo good.

Just installed the firefox 3 and my love for firefox has just crossed more limits. Here i'm describing what i have instantly found new and improved in the 3 odd hours of my experience....

+ The foremost and the most noteable thing is the tremendous improvement in the bookmarking. I would like to call it the ITUNESisation of the bookmarks. The "Organize bookmarks" is now available as a Library....... ditto itunes, where in addition to your bookmarks you have the whole history of your websites visits also saved automatically. You can now sort your bookmarks and history by the number of visit counts to that particular website......... it can be compared to the play count in itunes.
More feature added to the bookmarking are........
- the keyword facility for each address
- you can now save your bookmark searches into dynamic folders that keeps updating.
- you can now TAG your bookmarks.

+ The other notable one is the improvement in the download manager with the additional option of pausing and resuming downloads which i have been missing all the while. Thank you ff3.

+Instant Web Site ID- Want to be extra sure about a site’s legitimacy before you make a purchase? Click on a site favicon for an instant identity overview. Another click digs deeper: how many times have you visited? Are your passwords saved? Check up on suspicious sites, avoid Web forgeries and make sure a site is what it claims to be.

+Anti Phishing-Shop and do business safely on the Internet. Firefox gets a fresh update of web forgery sites 48 times in a day, so if you try to visit a fraudulent site that’s pretending to be a site you trust (like your bank), a browser message—big as life—will stop you.

+ And from my very early experience........ i feel that the speed has improved.... yes it has.

I'm sure as i go on romancing ff3, i'm goin to love this one damn good browser even more.......

Firefox 3 rocks !!
