Anybody testing this on their PCs? Some plugins aren't supported yet. It seems to be just a tad bit faster than 3.0.11 on my home PC, but it may just be placebo.

I have it, not much different than the RC1 I had, a bit faster here and there, but I have been using Safari and Google Chrome, and those are just zippy compared to firefox.

Opera is also blazing fast, both 9.x and 10 alpha. FF feels downright SLOW compared to chrome, opera and safari.

Hm. FF 3.5 RC2 is faster than FF 3.5 B11. Not as fast as opera, chrome and safari, but it's close.

I'll just wait for the full version to come out. The speed will be a welcome addition, but it sounds like the improvement is mainly in javascript performance. After using Chrome, using firefox is tedious, too slow starting up, opening new tabs, ect. BTW, Chrome for linux is working great, I've only encountered one lockup while using a google site. If it wasn't lacking plugins I would no longer need firefox.
