    Well with all the hype 'bout it I decided to give it a try.

    I've now converted to Firefox 3. At least until I can tryout IE8.

    I'm only using it for it's speed and startup time. It really puts IE7 to shame, but other than that all these addons/plugins are a real hassle.

    Do any of ya'll have any recommendations on addons/plugins and the like?

    There's so many. I already have a few.

    Tips on FF usage would be nice also. Like watch the number of addons since some slow the shit out off FF.

    here are my addons
    Adblock
    chatzilla
    flashblock
    download statusbar
    noscript
    megaupload
    flashdownloader
    foxclock

    Refer firefox site to see what these addons wil do the functions

    BTW I customized firefox codes to my needs.
    I've learned that it takes years to build up trust,
    and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.

    I am proud to be a part of this communities.

    Installing a lot of plugins won't slow you down noticeably.
    Install Fasterfox,CSLite(cookie safe) and AdBlock Plus.specially AdBlock.They'll all speed up FF not slow it down
    NoScript is a good idea if you do a lot of unsafe browsing otherwise don't bother since you'll just end up having to allow stuff anyway.

    Opera is great just not as customizable as FF but inherently more secure.

    adblock is the most important one...

    Also ones I like are gmail notifier (checks your gmail and says when you get a new message), and Firebug (only good if you develop websites ).
