    It is supposed to be out officially on June 21 .. that's in a few hours I guess.. and I did see report' around that the final version is indeed out already since the last few days... though there are always the possibility of last minute tweaks until it is officially made official! Cheers...

    And btw, FileHippo IS a reliable software source, FYI :)

    If you really want the latest stuff from mozilla.org, then check their FTP server regularily: ftp.mozilla.org

    I absolutely would consider filehippo a legit software source.

    No, it most certainly is the final. Just because they haven't updated the website, doesn't mean it isn't technically "out" via the ftp server.

    Well, it reduced my average memory consumption by 2/3, which was starting to bother me since 4. Back almost back to my old 3.5 levels.
