#5 Nice improvement over .6

I booted into windows to give this a try and it was nice and snappy. One thing seemed odd for a default after a completely clean install. There were what appeared to be 3 different bookmarks menus. I'm sure there's some option (I didn't look, my linux partition was getting mad at me for being booted into windows for more than a few minutes) to change that but it just seemed like a confusing default. Also, the layers buttons are kind of small and thus hard to hit in high-res screens. Other than those two things, it seeme pretty good in for the few pages I loaded and the few minutes I poked around the features. Much improved over 0.6 in every way but size (it grew more than 25% in download size!)
