Glad to hear of the Java improvements. Interested to see how the PDF viewer performs as well. Thanks for the info

I didn't want to start a new firefox beta version thread, so I posted this in the v17 final thread. But since it's here...I'll post it here too.

Firefox 18.0b1 released

I'm really liking this one with the new ionmonkey javascript engine. Noticeably quicker in java-rich environments than 17.

However it does break Tab Mix Plus (0.4.0.4pre.120724a) on one of my installs (Portable), but held up on my full install.
