I don't know about Chrome and IE8, but Firefox has an incredible number of little "add-ons" that really improve general web surfing. My favorite is called "Adblock Plus" - which is a nifty little self-updating add-on that blocks 95% of all flashing ads and all kinds of other annoying things that try to distract you when you view a web page.
For instance, here's a page with Adblock Plus turned off -
And here's the same page with Adblock Plus turned on -
Firefox has numerous other add-ons that make web surfing a pleasure!

Installed 3.5 today.
It does not support my Norton's toolbox. I'm a little upset on that. Need to see what else happened. Will try for a few days and see.

using 3.5.2 on windows 7 ultimate 64x and so far it runs fine except for with facebook it seems to not like facebook anymore. fb runs fine w/ IE but i can't access my inbox or it takes ages and then can't send a msg. other than that haven't seen any problems and not even sure its firefox's fault except for the fact that fb works in IE...
i take that back i have had issues with it locking up and not closing properly when closed so that when i try to open it up later windows tells me there is already an instance of it running. all i have to do is close the task in the process list

Do yourself a favor and dump Norton. It is a resource hog and it isn't very effective. I gobbles RAM and CPU cycles.

When you finally get totally rid of you it will see a boost in performance.
