Well, the biggest problem is that the malware blocker relies on Google Inc, which is the mother company for Google. I do not trust them to make a good decision on what is malware and what isn't.

I like 2.0, and until somebody proves 3.0 (or minesweeper as it is called) is better, I am sticking with 2.0.

Same here. 2.0 is the best version so far IMO. I don't like to rush to things after their first released anyways. I'd rather let it prove itself worthy and then download it. It can't be too bad though, I know it won't be as bad as safari for PC so at least there's some good news so far

No dude, if it ain't broke, then it does not have enough modifications yet.

You forgot, it's not a bug, it's a feature.
