If anyone knows the details, what's the major changes between Firefox 8 & 9? If you have a link to a nice side-by-side comparison that would work also.

That list looks pretty insignificant for a new version release.

Firefox 10 should be a bit better with a radically shaken-up update system in progress -- although parts of it are currently "At Risk" which means they might not make it until Firefox 11.
