Personally, I think Google labs seems to be coming out with the more interesting, easy to use apps. I have heard of Wave, which seems like a pretty ground breaking app...

i found Personas to be painfully useless (like, i-can't-read-my-menus-or-icons-useless) even with the professional ones, and submitting your own (with muted colors for easier viewing) was too laborious to bother with.)

 

And i can't believe you guys didn't mention SKIPSCREEN. Instead of waiting 60seconds to download a file from megaupload, sendspace, badongo, etc, it SKIPSt hat waiting and starts your DL immediately.

 

Two thumbs up for Forecastfox and Xmarks/Foxmarks as well.

This is a list of Mozilla Labs projects, not addons. ;)

I've found that Weave runs very slow--painfully slow--when it is synching.  I've been a fan of XMarks (and previously FoxMarks) for a long time now and so I thought Weave was the logical progression of the user experience.

Maybe it's better off now that FF has done a slight upgrade, but I'm going to be reluctant to use the add-on if it slows down my internet use as much as it had.

Weave sounds almost identical to Xmarks (formerly Foxmarks).  What are the differences?  Which is better?

that's all fine and dandy but it since since 3.5 none of my plugins work anymore.  Maybe they ought to fix that so I can at least get add-blocker working again, eh?  Might as well go back an older version of FF.

 I don't know what plugins you use, but I have not experienced this issue. It may be more isolated to your configuration and/or environment.

Working fine for me: AdBlock Plus, Download Statusbar, DownThemAll, FireFTP, FireGestures, ForecastFox, FoxyTunes, NoScript, pdfit, RefControl, TwitterBar, and User Agent Switcher,

I have upgraded to 3.5.1 and all of my favorite add-ons seem to work fine including Billeo https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/12715 It's a great toolbar for those of us who pay bills online. Security is not an issue as it is VeriSign secured and TRUSTe certified.
