I haven't tried it yet, because I'm not sure if I need it, since I use lastpass and a couple of others, and I'm not quite ready to replace them just yet. It is a suite though, that looks like it could replace several standalone extensions.
I tried this a while back. I can't remember exactly why i dumped it but i might reinstall it to find out.

It might need a little more development.

I see on the Mozilla support forum where many are saying that FF 4.0 is a total bust. I am in agreement with them. A good many add-ons are apparently no longer being supported in that version. Time will tell but I think Gizmo's should replace them as the number one free WEB browser.

Thanks

Hey Wildman, I don't know man, FF4 has been very pleasant for me from
day one.
There are a few things that make FF my favorite browser. I will mention here
some that are very rarely mentioned. #1 You can get rid of the search bar,
something you can not do on IE. To me that killed IE. #2 Navigation toolbar
can be customized in a way in which bookmarks can be placed as a sidebar
on the left side of the screen. Maybe I am too square but I can not get use
to the way Google does it. I want my bookmark tab where it has always
been placed, to the left of the location bar. To me that kills all Chrome type
browsers and #3 You can make FF look exactly as you want. Personally, I
prefer it very clean with very few (as few as possible) buttons and NO extra
toolbar at all but if the user wants a supersonic kind of look, the possibility
its there for you to have it. That is the beauty of FF.

About addons not being compatible. Honestly, Isn't that the responsibility
of the addon developer? I think it is.

I agree with Bo here. FF 4 is still my browser of choice although I'm doing some testing with Chrome based browsers.

The add-ons that are important to me work with with FF 4. AdBlock Plus, WOT, BetterPrivacy, Ghostery all work fine.

And to be honest, I have yet to find a Chrome based browser that will out perform
FF 4 in terms of speed and machine resource use.

Of course I'm on a Pentium 4, XP SP3, 1GB RAM machine so I probably won't see big performance differences anyway. My DLS internet connect isn't the fastest available either. Both suit my needs though.

Here's a handy looking extension called Google shortcuts, for those of you that like to use Google services, but would rather not use the Google toolbar.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...all-google-se/ There is also a version for Chrome as well.

Bo is absolutely right on this one.

My only (serious) addons related complain with Firefox 4, is that none of the "unshort url" or "long url" ones are updated - short urls make me insecure.

BTW, does anyone know/ can explain why the DOM protection feature was removed from Better Privacy on Firefox 4?

Thanks

Added: Extended Copy Menu

Good for copy plain text, since the popular extension Copy Plain Text does not work with Firefox 4 yet.

Hmm, here's an extension that brings KeePass integration into Firefox 4.
