Default Firefox 4

Has anyone else upgraded to Firefox 4?

I was hesitant to make the upgrade since I'm so accustomed to the interface of the previous firefox versions. But I went ahead and finally pulled the trigger and I'm extremely glad I did, this thing is screaming fast.

I've been using it since beta 4 not looking back. If you guys are on an older computer there are some optimized builds out they're for older instruction sets (SSE, SSE2(Pentium 3 and 4 era)) that did wonders on my computer at work.

I actually miss the older version, but FF4 is a little faster.

You can go in an customize it so it looks almost the same as the 3.6 version. I was unhappy that it looked different and I had to customize it to look that way. I'm picky and I don't like change like that. I haven't really noticed a difference in speed.

I like it for the most part. I want my reload and back buttons, but I can't seem to get them back. I don't see those buttons in the customize toolbar menu.

What I always do is just click on the link with the scroller on the mouse, that by default opens the link in a new tab.
