Where's Walt? On Firefox 3

Walt Mossberg wields much power in the US, so the following is significant:

My verdict is that Firefox 3.0 is the best Web browser out there right now, and that it tops the current versions of both IE and Safari in features, speed and security. It is easy to install and easy to use, even for a mainstream, non-technical user.

Having finally become fed up with oh-so-slow and memory-leaking Firefox 2 this week, I tried Opera, which I last tried around four years ago. Wow. I was very surprised to find it lean, quick and with most of the features that FF relies on plugins for. Unless FF3 can pull some impressive rabbits out of the hat, I'll be sticking with Opera.

Dichotomy: idealogically I'd use FF (or similar) as they are Open Source, but pragmatically Opera is better. When it comes to business, pragmatism wins over idealology every time.

I agree that Firefox has been as leaky as hell, but version 3 finally seems to have made a significant improvement on this. Might be worth trying once the final version is out - the new features are very good.
