    " Platform-Native Look & Feel

    The new Firefox looks and feels like home. Think of it as a Firefox who’s really good at making friends. Whether you use Windows Vista, Windows XP, Mac or Linux, the browser seamlessly integrates into your computer’s environment. A native look makes for a flawless interface that never gives you pause. " - http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/features/#native

    Firefox 3 does not look ONLY like Safari but depending on what operating system you are using. All the looks in just one application.


    Now, beat that SAFARI!:cool:

    I don't use firefox. I dunno why. I tried it once when they release ffox 3. but i uninstalled it shortly afterwards.

    maybe coz my normally rainbow-ish beachball of death icon (loading pointer cursor thing) turns black n white when i use firefox.

    From the time i switched to mac, Firefox is my default web browser. It's fast (blazing fast). And now comes Firefox 3 which is way way cooler in terms of user interface and like what you said, it has Safari-like and Apple-feel on it. And yeah, it's fast (blazing fast).

    Safari is cool too. It is my secondary browser.

    It's the reverse for me. I use Safari as my primary, but I keep a DMG of FF3 in my Downloads Stack.

    Anyone know if FF3 is much less of a memory hog than FF2 was?

    I think your case is isolated. Most of the users says its faster than Safari.

    open Firefox then go to Preferences> Main> Manage Add-ons
    A separate window will open. Just click on "Get Add-Ons" tab. :)
