FireFox 3.0?

I got the big new release of FireFox 3.0. Looks fine. Actually looks mostly the same. I am not sure what the big changes are but I am trying it out to see how it goes.

I know one regular headache with FireFox for me has been that it would pin the CPU for no apparent reason. The closest I came to seeing a pattern is that it seemed to have to do with pages being opened that had Flash scripts on them. But I can't say I ever verified that. All I know is that fairly regularly when my system got slow, I would see FireFox at the top.

If that's all that FF3.0 fixes, that would be enough for me.

Update: I just saw this link about FireFox 3.0

Yup, both of FF's -- 2 and 3 -- that I used recently on my PC did exactly this. I have several feeds that I follow from within google reader as they have flash in every post and I can't see flash in BB. So, when I opened a feed in google reader, I could hear my laptop fan start spinning harder and harder.

Now that I use Mac, I'm a big fan of Safari 3 and have no problems with Flash whatsoever as far as I can tell.
