If anything, it's better on Win7. (I use Firefox 3.5.2.) However, it continues to suffer from Flash video stuttering, which occurs every 10 sec or so (audio is unaffected), and occasional pauses when using the mouse wheel to scroll through a web page. These are widely reported problems that have been ongoing since at least Firefox 3.0, the first version good enough to make me leave IE.

YEAH - what's with the video stuttering? I thought that was only when I had too many tabs open. Oh no, forgot, then video totally stops. FF blows.

As long as it has AWESOME tab support, session restore support, and bug-free video play, I'll try it. Doing some Chrome experimentation right now.

Zigzag, you seem to be an expert on FF and other browsers. I'd love to see come comparisons on features, memory utilization, speed, etc., of all the popular browsers. Got links?
