I just switched over to Ff 2b2 in winXP/vista, Linux, and OS X. I used the nightly-1.1 extension to get most of my 1.5 extensions and themes working in Linux and Windows. Under OS X, all of the themes and extensions worked without forcing them to! However, I elected to disable some older extensions in favor of the beta's own extensions.


I just love the spell check feature. Google won't be looking up and caching words for me anymore.
