As I said, the "awesome bar" is the biggest thing. The address bar is a history search which is great. You stick whatever you were looking at in the address bar and it will list websites which matches those terms. Check the video out

Looks nice but that is for a Mac. What about Windows?

When I tried the latest RC it seemed to have those problems fixed. I had two tabs open and it ran at about 40MB where as one tab with FF2 on my machine runs at about 65MB.

I had RC3 and it had a whole lot of glitches, so I went back to FF2. I don't like a couple things about it but might be able to live with it if they fixed the spell checker for the final release... I guess I can give it a try, and go back if it still does work right.

I think they have for the most part. I noticed it still uses a bit of RAM, but considering the features it has it actually uses less RAM than Firefox 2.
