its faster by every measurable standard iv seen. its also more stable
from my experience.. but the biggest gain is memory management. it
does not leak like ff2 nearly as much.

Under linux you can run both versions with very few problems (though
not at the same time). i do it all the time to test websites first
with 3 then with 2.

So far other than plugin compatibility (which is much better now) i
see no reason to use ff2 other than to test websites.
