So far no problems and dont see much difference. Running it on Windows, Feren OS and Neon.

I've had it on Arch for a while actually, and Neon as well of course. I'm in total agreement with you, I see absolutely no difference from the prior release other than the ctl+tab functionality now defaults to the way I hate.

It actually seems a pinch slower to me.

Yeah, Chrome's breakneck pace forced Mozilla to step up theirs.

I have no issues with having set releases, but I think both Chrome and to a lesser extent Firefox have suffered some quality issues from the pace of their releases. Also if you look back at our own personal thoughts, how often has it been "I can't see a difference" due to only a few VERY minor things being changed beyond security patches for a new version?

Whats interesting is on top of these speedy new versions, they are still patching quite a bit.
