    I'm not easily impressed, what is going to potentially make my eyes pop
    out?

    The page rendering is *so* popping
    that on the full-screen pron pages
    I can't even turn-off my motor-boaters...

    (Or the more grammer-gnat-zee correct "motors-boater")

    FYI : new Firefox has a fatal security flaw;
    slobber, snot and whisker-burn
    all over your LCD screens.

    (Or the more grammer-gnat-zee correct "LCDs-screen")

    HTH.

    What am I going to be impressed with? Is it noticeably speedier? Has its
    format and design changed to such an extent that it's going to a pain in the
    ass to get used to?

    I've been using Chrome a lot recently --- per speedtest.net, Chrome is
    averaging 2.5 Mb/s download but Firefox (3.5.5) averages about 1.5Mb/s. Is
    there an improvement with 3.6.9?

    Well, let's see if I can make it any simpler for you:
    -accessing http://speedtest.net/ via firefox, download speed is rated at
    1.5Mb/s.
    -accessing http://speedtest.net/ via chrome, download speed is rated at
    2.5Mb/s.
    WTF is so hard to understand?

    LOL. The dope seems to think that his bandwidth is dependent on his

    I can't think of a reason other than the Flash process involved in the
    test being better suited in Chrome. Why not use the latest FF and Flash
    OCX?
