    Mozilla has opened up FF3a1 for download to developers, testers, and those brave/dumb enough to try it. I fall into one of those categories (not the first one). ;) Grand Paradiso (the codename of FF3) isn't due to be released until late '07.

    I'm able to install it without wiping out my FF2 because it installs as "Grand Paradiso". It looks pretty much the same as 2.0... the changes are under the hood. Most of my extensions didn't work (incompatible), but by using Nightly Tester Tools (another extension) I was able to force them to work.

    I'll be trying this puppy out, and will try to keep y'all updated.

    Well, there are some differences...

    My right click menu is absolutely huge! There are a blue million options... I have to sctoll down almost a page to get to copy and paste.

    Yahoo Mail Beta doesn't recognize FF3 at all. I have to use IE Tab to check my mail with it.

    FF3 also renders pages a little different. I can't put my finger on it, but it's different.
