Yes, I did. Didn't like having to install Mozilla just to get the galeon front-end (two browsers for the cost of one?). Didn't like the default toolbar layout either. Didn't like the way it hesitated before fetching a web page. What I did like was how the search engines were bookmarked. That was cool.

Don't get me wrong. Firefox is far from perfect, but its getting there fast.

I've got a NEW_TAB button. You need to install the Tabbrowser Preferences extension

I must say Firefox takes my vote again! Much easier, faster, and more secure than any other browser!

How are we ever going to get a flame war over this? This one's going to be a pre-1990 Albanian election result...

Pity there's no IE for Linux. That might just get things going ;-)

go firefox

I love the latest firefox. This is already fantastic but a little more polish and it will be nearly perfect. Extensions are very good, it seems I can't live without adblock and image zoom. Uninstall of extensions needs work. I use KDE and konqueror is a good browser for some file management and such. Even latest mozilla doesn't nearly match firefox.
