"Disable common annoyances?" That's rather disappointing. I kind of like being able to control, in a fine-grained way, just what scripts can and can't do. Losing that ability for a global "get rid of what most folks hate" option isn't a pleasing thought.

(I can see the utility of having such an option in addition to the finer-grained controls, mind you.)

You can still tweak the individual javascript controls using the about:config interface.

Speaking of the preferences, I can honestly say that Firefox screenshot show the worst preference implementation I have ever seen. Multi-level tabbing is terrible.

Multi-level tabbing is terrible.

At least it's not that terrible MSFT multi-row scheme where tabs move around (from row to row) as they are selected.

I don't mind the multi-level tabbing (I don't use prefs much), but I'm getting pretty sick of dropping into about:config or installing potentially-conflicting extensions (one of these days, I'll have to get off my lazy butt and figure out what's causing an XML parsing error when firefox tries to build anything from the common dialogs set (eg, OK/CANCEL, OK, YES/NO, etc.)) to get my settings back.

If it weren't for certain extensions, I'd just stick with Konqueror and let that be the end of it.
