I always wait a week or so because most of the add-ons won't work with the new version.

I installed it yesterday. The webpages are definitely opening faster than before, so yes, Firefox 3.5 IS faster .

I would agree with this, and I have LinkExtend installed too. I've been using the RC3 version for a couple of weeks now and I like it. Would still use Opera but site verification and script management is so much easier with Firefox.

Yes, many add-ons do not officially support 3.5, so if compatibility checking is enabled, they won't work yet.
But if you disable compatibility checking, 3.5 really doesn't break many add-ons.
All of my 30+ add-ons work fine.

Agree with Psych. I have compat check off as well and all add-ons work fine. Only some of the older themes do not display all correct anymore but there are many 3.5 themes online already.

I also have the impression that FF35 is faster.

RoboForm users should be aware they need version 6.9.5 for full update compatability.

It's nice, except Tab Mix Plus isn't working properly..
Also, the open link in background tab doesn't exist anymore, it is something very useful for me. Any way to revive it?
