Another update -- and this might be useful for anyone running on a low-powered netbook.

I just updated to Firefox 3.1 (or 3.5, as it's been re-versioned). The performance difference is huge. In particular, with previous versions of Firefox, I got relatively frequent "stuttering" -- that is, the disk I/O light went on, and until it switched off again, the browser would become unresponsive -- no scrolling, no tab switching, no pop-ups, nothing. This may have been a bit better between LinpusBastard and Jaunty, but with 3.1, this is as good as gone: the light blinks a lot less to start with, and the browser stays responsive even when it does. Major usability boost!
