I've been running it for about two weeks (3.0 RC2) and I'm not very pleased. It's much slower, and it tends to hog a lot more RAM and CPU cycles than 2.0.0.14 did. I routinely see it sitting at 5-15% CPU utilization and 200-400 MB when it's just idle with 6 or 8 tabs open.

Just haven't gotten off my *** and downgraded yet.

Exactly what has happened to me.

Plus I hate alot of the new browser bar features. I had to turn half the things off on RC2.

i simply dont like that my favorite add-ins dont work. and i hate how when you type in the address bar, the titles of the websites appear, as well as the address below it. It's very annoying and i haven't seem to figure out removing that feature....otherwise, on this **** computer at work it's running fairly well, eating only 170mb of my ram vs 240mb i used to see.

My pimpzilla theme no longer works, that's the worst thing I've seen so far.
