    Well the spell checking feature is worth switching to it. Its kinda funny though, it will underline http as being miss spelled. It does allow you to add words to the dictionary. It allows you to spell check your address bar and message board forum boxes.

    Most of my plug ins made the upgrade just fine with the exception with a few of the newest ones I have downloaded. Like my bittorrent RSS feed reader and that video ripper.

    it just ends up eating a lot of ram. if you have a 512 stick in your machine, you probably won't notice it.
