It seems a little faster and less bloated to me than some older versions.

There are lots of improvements in Firebird 0.7 but since I haven't used an older version for a while I forget what they are. lol

I just got Mozilla 1.6 from pacman today (Arch). The upgrade went without a hitch and seems a little quicker (too early to tell). The only bad thing is that you (I) had to re-install the plug-ins that I had installed (java,flash,mplayer etc).
