I love ff, but ever sense IE has been showing all of it's tabs in the start menu I've been using it a lot more... I just like being able to WinKey + # to the tab I want... Instead with FF I winkey + # (or alt tab) then ctrl tab to the tab I want, or if I'm using a mouse I only get to see the front page of each ff instance (I can't help it, I open multiple instances with multiple tabs)

The author of this add-on explains why it is dubbed "experimental" :

" Long Description

This addon would not be experimental if it wasn't for the fact that the lead Mozilla developers don't like what this addon is able to do. This addon is stable but was sandboxes due to its excessive abilities.

The "Lite" in Fasterfox Lite does not mean less performance, it is just a reference to the removal of the obtrusive prefetching ability in Fasterfox. Prefetching was removed for this Lite version because it wasted a lot of server bandwidth as well as causing unnecessary server load. "

So this means it is not experimental because it is harmful but because it is so powerful.

You owe it to yourself to at least try it, if you don't like it then you can uninstall it from FF.

Honestly I dont care that its experimental, it works. I use experimental, force things to run that aren't supposed to by using nightly tools tester, etc. Your absolutely correct just wanted to sound a note of caution for others in case

If you download the nightly tester tools, you can force install it. Xmarks works fine for me when force installed.

Or if you don't want to install the addon.

Quote:
  • Type about:config into Firefox's address bar and click the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button.
  • Right-click anywhere. Choose New>Boolean. Make the name of your new config value extensions.checkCompatibility and set it to false.

Export is easy enough for me. I backup my Bookmarks about every week to two weeks. Importing them is just as easy, however I don't Import them to IE8 as IE8 doesn't like Symbols. You can put the Bookmarks in IE8, but when you try to remove them you'll get a file error and there is no way outside of a format reload to get them out of Favorites.

Chrome is a joke! How it is setup and layed out. Firefox 3.5 RC3 seems to be completly stable for me. I just hope the Open Download (similar to run file in IE) gets updated to be compatible. The nice thing about 3.5 is it tells you the compatibility before you install a plugin and in fact blocks plugins that don't work.

Yes but some blocked things will work, especially blocked themes.

Thats why we have that nifty little 'Nightly Tester Tools' addon that will let you bypass that block.

Oh, didn't know that, will give it a try. The only plugin that I use is the Open Download. Thanks.
