Firefox 4 - Finally A Noticeable Change

I tried the new Firefox 4 pre8 beta on Fedora 14. I often use a ssh -X connection to another computer on the lan.

This time I could notice that browsing javascript rich sites was significantly better on the remote desktops using firefox 4. Scrolling was visibly smoother. It was virtually as smooth as on the desktop itself.

I had not found Google Chrome to be much better on the remote machine. So, although I use both Chrome and Firefox, latter continues to be my preferred browser.

The tabs are now above the toolbar but I did not really notice that at first.
