Firefox 3 is out. What is your favorite feature in Firefox 3 that Firefox 2 didn't have. If you are moving from IE just tell up your favorite Feature.

[NOTE: The Options for the Poll are copied from Lifehacker's Top 10 Firefox 3 Features. I just thought I would give them credit.]

My Favorite of all of the features would have to be...The Better Add-ons manager, because I like add-ons and It's nice how they're grouped like that, Also I like how you can browse the add-ons without opening a new tab.

My favorite feature is the improved performance can really tell the speed difference between Firefox 2 and 3.

been using the beta for months and i love it, especially now that we have the final released. Hard picking a top feature but if i had to choose it would be the smart location feature

Agreed.

And it takes up less resources, something which I really appreciate.

Yeh, the performance is good, but I never noticed too much with FF2, but I have a dual core processor.

I actually like almost every feature in FF3. I like the Insanely improved performance, the Smart Location Bar, the smart bookmarks and also the stronger phishing and malware(virus scanner) and a lot of others like the Streamlined "Remember password" handling plus like Vinceh said, the icons are pretty cool also. I like it better then Firefox 2

I just loaded it up. Looks like whatever version I was running yesterday before they pushed 3 out.

But wait! I like the part where loading about:config warns you that tooling around in there might void your warranty. Geek humour FTW!

They still haven't fixed the stupid default setting of browser.backspace_action, however, I see...

I like the new default theme and icons the best. Finally firefox actually looks like a more modern browser right of the bat. It still doesn't match the eye candy and slick look of Opera 9.50 though.

The new password manager is pretty good too.

I like the Smart Location Bar the best (though I accidentally voted for Smart Bookmarks). It just makes returning to websites so much easier.
