Firefox 3

I just downloaded Firefox 3 Beta 1 and installed it (recently I have been a bit unhappy with Firefox due to performance issues, especially visiting/using web site/applications that are DHTML/JavaScript/AJAX intensive). I will use this post to keep updating the features I have been noticing as a end user and a developer.

* The file upload field automatically opens up the File Open dialog as soon as the cursor is placed on the field. The textfield also appears as disabled and tabbing to the field automatically places the cursor to the “Browse” button next to the field. While this is good, it’s unclear how I can clear the file I selected to upload!
* Recently I wrote about Nested TBODYs and the example I had was a bit slow for large data set. Now the nodes are expanding and collapsing much faster.
