Firefox 3 Beta 2 - faster and easier to navigate

I've just downloaded and had a casual fool around with Firefox 3 Beta 2 and I'm told that it has approximately 900 improvements over the previous beta, including fixes for stability, performance, memory usage, platform enhancements and user interface improvements. However, what it boils down to is that it's even faster than the Beta 1 version and it is even easier to navigate.

In its release notes, Mozilla makes a song and dance about the improved security features of Beta 2 - restricting cookies to a single domain, protection against JSON data leaks and so on. No doubt, these are among the most important aspects but the thing you'll notice as a user, aside from the speed increase over previous versions, is the smart way that it enables you to get to websites with a minimum of typing.
