Looks like mostly stuff to allow them to put ads in the browser and let them use your browsing habits directly from the browser rather than using cookies. After first use I didn't really like it and probably wouldn't have used it anyways.

Oh and just FYI, don't download the IE8 beta... was pretty buggy when I tried it out. (not a complaint really, I have no problems with betas being buggy wink.gif)

One semi-major annoyance with Firefox 3 though. Why in hell can't I have it automatically sort my bookmarks alphabetically?!?! You tell it to sort but then every time you add a new one you have to resort it, and you can't right click->sort like you can in IE. Just a bug?

they changed the eula... safe to use chrome now right? WRONG!

chrome has a keylogger that logs all of your keystrokes and sends them back to google's servers

with the firefox 3.1 beta's new javascript engine (tracemonkey), it now rivals chrome in speed, although it's disabled by default. Make sure you turn it on in the about:config if you're looking to try it out.

I thought the new address bar was a little weird, but I really like it now. You can also change some about:config settings to get it to act more like the old one.
