We're big fans of the Firefox 3 betas at EPIC FU. It runs faster, eats up less memory, and generally speaking we like the new features, e.g. the almighty location bar. Also, the Mac theme is much more Mac-like. Did I mention we like Macs?

cool firefox addon: shareaholic

Shareaholic

I recently started using the Firefox add-on Shareaholic, and it's truly quite awesome in a mega-useful way. It lets you quickly submit the page you're browsing to a bunch of different bookmark/sharing websites, including del.icio.us, Digg, Tumblr, Twitter, and a lot more. It's a must-have for all you hot and sweaty social web lovers.
