New Firefox, same old Firefox

Yes, I have downloaded Firefox 3 and am using it. I don't know why they decided to call it 3 instead of, say, 2.5, since from the perspective of an ordinary user like me, the improvements of Firefox 3 over Firefox 2 are marginal.

The browser technology really has matured to the point where you can't expect exciting new features anymore, even with the release of a new version.
