Firefox 3 Beta 4

If you use Firefox, it might be worth paying a visit to their beta download site.

I use Firefox as my secondary browser (Safari is my favourite). Firefox 3 Beta 4 (on Mac OSX 10.4.11) is subjectively much faster than Firefox 2 on many sites, especially those that are Javascript-heavy.

One minor bug/feature I have noticed is that if you download a jpeg via Firefox 3, it is renamed to the lesser-used .jfif ending, which Photoshop doesn't recognise. Simply changing the ending to .jpg sorts it out, but hopefully this will be sorted in the proper release.
