If you haven't started playing with <canvas>, now is the time to get acquainted.
I had to uninstall and go back to 2.0. No problems now.
Is Firefox 3 stable yet?
I have no issues with FF3 to report, though some recent releases of Firebug have been troublesome.
Try collapsing a long table with many rows, row by row without delay and time it in Firefox vs IE vs Opera. Firefox simply cannot handle the dhtml update and takes twice as long.
So virtual calculation = much faster. Screen updates = still slow.
Now those Invisible Iframe launcher scripts ...
I never browse without the NoScript extension active.
and the web of extremely rich interactivity heralded by Flash in the early 2000's is on its way back in. Can you smell it? Yes that's the unmistakable upwind aroma of animated splash pages.
The tongue-in-cheek humor here made me LOL, but on the serious side of this is the first part of your sentence -- the recognition of the extremely rich interactivity. There is another thread in the Supporter's Forum right now discussing the Mozilla Ubiquity project that is worth checking out as it is directly targeted at the end user's experience regarding interactivity.
And I was checking out the Pencil [webmasterworld.com] Project yesterday too. Pencil makes uses of the SVG support in Firefox 3 to implement all the shape rendering and scripting.
It's almost as if Firefox is going to be your all-in-one software package soon. How will they contain "browser-bloat"?
