It has been out for about 10 days. How about experiences? Anyone using it?
Have they really removed most bugs?

It's more stable in my opinion. The previous version would not load correctly for me even if it was the first application I ran after starting the system up. So far, it loads much faster; loads web pages faster, and seems to have all of my add-ins working correctly versus the last version not loading numerous ones.

So far, tails up!

With the exception of one clients site, everything seems to be O.K.

Firefox 3

Just to give you a little more:

They revamped the Back and Forward buttons.
You can resize the address and search bars now.
The zoom feature lets you increase the size of pictures and text.
Internal applications of it launch quicker.
It saves the windows and tabs when you close it if you want.
It remembers site passwords first rather than after.
Icons for sites give more security information.
You get pre-warning of bad sites.
The add-in process is easier.
Searching is closer to the words you type as the web sites come up.

I'm sure there's a lot more. That's what I've seen.

There is a small bug in it regarding the mapping system for Northern Illinois MLS (MLSNI's ConnectMLS - probably because the mapping system is Microsoft). The MLS folks told me they are working on it. Other than that I have had no real problems - although I have had it shut down a few times for no good reason (like IE loves to do). It is more secure, but runs a little slower than Firefox 2.

seems a bit snappier-but it's been hard for me to judge, as I've been using it since beta 1. It just seems more stable than before, if nothing else. There are some plug-in compatibility issues, but I only use a couple (noscript, which should be a must for safe surfing-it lets you whitelist "safe" websites, meaning any unintended websites won't have their scripts run; and ad-blocker plus, which blocks all access to known web advertiser sites, even if it's called by a site you normally visit) and both work well, so far, with ff 3.
