    Not bad at all.

    I like it.

    The spelling checker is a good addition.

    That, and the close tab button is now on the tab, rather than at the far right.

    I've been using it for a few nights. It's not bad. Kind of getting used to it right now.

    I had no spellcheck in Opera 9.01 - it was no where to be found, how much labor does it take to get it?

    A bunch of my extension end up broke, not too much of a surprise since many of them break with every major FF update.
    However after installing MR Tech Local Install https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/421/ I could make them compatible and they work.

    The built-in basics of SessionSaver is nice, but having SessionSaver with it's extra features is better.

    Having the Extensions and Themes in one window is nice, at least I would think so for those that use both Extensions and Themes. But what really impressed me is that it now adds a restart button but only useable after installing new extensions and themes.

    MR Tech Local Install also ends up helping in getting rid of extensions that that have simular features. If you have the Restart Firefox extension installed now and install MR Tech Local Install, it'll tell you that you don't need Restart Firefox extension because it has MTLI has it built in.

    I haven't moved to it on my Mac yet, but I have on my PC.

    I don't think Firefox could do a better job of it's session saver, now they just gotta add some new features for FF 3.
    In Preferences/Options you can set it to resume the previous session when it starts. (just in case anyone feels like pointing out Opera has had that feature for a while - I know, but still FF does a better job saving the session - saving forms, scrollbars, the lot)
    That is a handy extension - /installs.
    Hmm that's not so bad, but I would've guessed I'd had GNU Aspell setup for GAIM spellchecking - mustn't have I suppose.

    Oh I know FF2 has a feature to save and restore the previous session, however I don't want it to do that all of the time. With SessionSaver you have the choice to resume or not. I just wish with the "not" option it would still retain that previous session in-case you have your mind later.
    With FF2 it's going to resume the session if you like it or not.

    With SessionSaver you can also choose to store a window/tab at any time and recall it at any time later, although you do it manually which want I was talking about before would be automatic.



    Something else I've just learned are the live bookmarks. I've always liked just having them listed in a sub folder that is on the Bookmarks Toolbar. Maybe it's just me. And then I see what's listed and go from there. In the past you had to rely on the Feed icon in the address bar. But what if the feed link was on the page?
    In the past I used 2 different extensions "rssadd" and "LiveBookmarkthis" both gave an option in the context menu to add the link as a live bookmark.
    And if you clicked on the feed link it just brought up a page.

    Now in Options->Feeds you have the choice of "Show me a preview and ask me which Feed Reader to use" or "Subscribe to the feed using:" Either one give you the option to save it as a Live Bookmark.

    So for me this truly does away with an extension.


    I'm really liking this built in spell checker. It's corrected me 2 or 3 times for this post alone. :bigthumb:
