    It just seems to be zooming anymore. I keep it clean by deleting the sandboxed sessions and with CCleaner, so it's not like it's caching my sites.

    In all honesty to me it's no faster than FF2, it just doesn't have all the memory issues and stalls I and others had with FF2. Maybe it is faster, I just can't tell myself.

    That was actually my initial impression also. Now...I'm not so sure!

    this forum is biased!
    ff3 is crazy fast for surfing,

    its getting much closer to safari for surfing speed.

    Who cares
    Yes, when I first switched from Fx2 I couldn't believe at it's speed! I even tried an alpha version of v 4.0, (don't remember where I got it, was without installation, in an archive) and was like going from Fx2 to Fx3, so...even faster!

    It is a bit faster than ff2, as if a small lag no longer exists. One click faster :)

    To me its getting slower as time goes on.

    I installed on download day. I'm not sure if its Firefox, or if it is my ISP getting slow (never had a problem with them and speed before).

    It just seems that I'm spinning my wheels waiting for pages to load. On download day it was "instant."

    It feels just a tad bit faster than FF2. Maybe it's just because I use Opera which is blazing fast.

    Have you been installing/un-installing quite a few add-ons and such? I hear that can gunk up your profile folder and COULD cause slowness (I say could because I'm not sure if a profile has anything to do with speed in Firefox).

    Edit: Oh, also, are you using SandboxIE? I've found that after a long time of using SandBoxIE (on my own system mind you, results may vary) my browsing in any browser starts slowing down over time, including page loading delays and such.
