[GLLUG] Firefox 3 vs. 2

FF3 is indeed much faster than FF2. I ran a beta version on my old
Intel Celery laptop with great success, on which FF2 was marginal.
Features are mostly the same. One thing I like about FF3 is the
so-called Awesome Bar which is really handy once you get used to it.

If you need speed, though, Konqueror is the fastest browser on Linux,
bar none. (As well as Windows and Mac soon, I hope).
