Adrian Kingsley-Hughes from zDNet has been testing the speed of popular browsers for weeks and concludes that the last beta version of Firefox 3 will crush competition: http://blogs.zdnet.com/hardware/?p=1648

and he is not the only one that is impressed: http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/pos...-eats-less-memory-than-ie-and-opera.html

I can't wait!

Because I use Firefox is it safe to assume I have the latest update? I right clicked around and checked properties here and there but couldn't find a statement of what version I'm using.

Click on [Help][about Firefox].

You'll probably find you're on version 2.0.0.13, the last stable version. Switch to a Beta version at your peril.

This is about the beta version 3, the 5th one to be specific; that means it is not final yet, but can be downloaded for testing. This one will probably be ready and released in June. The latest final version is 2.0.0.13; you'll find out by clicking "Help" and then "About Mozilla Firefox".

A Beta version of software is not yet ready for release as a stable final version. It's probably near that stage, and they're releasing it so people can try it on their own computers and see if there are any residual problems. There may well be problems with it.
