1. ... whoah firefox 4 is fast. Like. Whoah.

I use chrome for some things, not because I like the interface and options all that much, but because sometimes it's much easier to have two browsers open. And the only thing I regretted about mostly using firefox was that it took so much longer to open and to load pages. But now it is WARP SPEED in comparison to firefox 3.x

I had to excitedly demonstrate this to t'wings, but I was briefly thwarted by the fact that I ask firefox to ask me whether to restore my previous session. I was like "look! I just click the button and ... okay, have to click through that dialogue choice ... but now it is there!"

2. Aaaaah there is no status bar you guys how can I tell if the site is asking for cookies or whether that's where I look to learn things what is stylish doing up there next to the search bar it belongs down in the lower right corner ahh.

3. CookieSafe, you do not work in Firefox 4, stop pretending that you do. Your buttons do not button, your menu does not menu, there is no there there.

I swapped to Cookie Monster temporarily, because I need a cookie manager, but I'd prefer something that has a toolbar button.

4. I love how easy it is to run two firefoxes at the same time. Firefox 4 is in beta, and I didn't want to screw up my old default profile. But otoh I didn't want to do the hard finding-the-bookmarks and session-manager preferences stuff. A little profile manager, a little copy paste, and I have firefox 3.6 and 4 using basically the same preferences but two different profiles.

5. Look the default position of the toolbars in Firefox 4 is just wrong, I'm sorry, what is that with the tabs above the location bar, I cannot deal with change you guys. Fortunately there is a ticky to fix it.

6. Seriously, I don't know why I put this off for so long. I heard such bad things about firefox that the idea of upgrading just felt like irritating work, I think, but wow this is so much better.
