The main thing for me is that it's built on Gecko 1.9.2 which should make it faster.

They say it's 20% faster than 3.5.  I'll download it tomorrow.

It does feel snappier and all my add-ons still work which is bonus.

Re: I bet you are all overcome with excitement

When I looked for it via the normal Mozilla page that we seem to get to from europe - 3.5 was still there, I had to go to Mozilla's US site to get it. Maybe just trying to balance the server load .
Difficult to see how much faster it is but yes a little better perhaps, and certainly no problems.
Maybe a change in thread title would highlight it to more people ?

Just downloaded FF3.6 and agree with adiewoo - it appears faster than the previous version.  So far so good.  Also found all my add-ons work OK.

Would someone try this for me.
Go to this site http://www.thepreferenceservice.com/ and click on one of the faces at the bottom.
What do you see?
I see code and I'm running FF 3.6.
