How do you manage to function even somewhat properly with McAfee?!  I have NEVER liked them.  We installed it on DAY 1 of owning this computer, and it slowed it waaaaaaaaay down.  We actually couldn't even use the brand new computer at all it was so slow.  When we uninstalled it it ran perfectly again.

McAfee is just a site advisor so it doesn't bog down the system.

I keep it simple and I don't really use extensions.  I like my web browser to be lean and fast, even if it is barebones; I don't need much more.

Delicious Bookmarks, WOT, and add-on compatibility reporter (disables compatibility checking on older addons... useful, as I test Firefox Aurora 7.0a2).
