    Yes, I'm trying it. It's faster and seems less bloated but it's not as configurable.
    I get a blank toolbar that I have to remove each time I restart. I'm sure they're aiming to make it a little more configurable in time. I'm not sure about privacy as it seems very chrome-like.
    My usual browser has been vivaldi which is also chrome-like so we'll see how it goes for firefox.

    On the basis of your OP i was going to try it, but then decided to try the even newer Nightly [58]. I was very underwhelmed. I remain in love with Vivaldi, as i relish its major customisability & utility; ideal for my workflow. FF / Nightly are just not my cup of tea, & purported speed by itself is insufficient to win me over. The total browsing experience is my priority.

    I was excited to try it, and I quickly switched back to Vivaldi.

    It's obviously going to be different from the one you're used to, so to genuinely try it means more than a quick test. Of course, I quite agree if you like what you've got stick with it.
    I like trying new things which is why I discovered vivaldi.
    The new firefox is growing on me.

    No haven't tried it yet. Will just wait for the upgrade when it's not in beta from what I've read it's coming soon.
    Best regards,
    Greg

    And I've fixed that toolbar problem too.

    I've switched to 52.5.0 ESR for the moment...

    I'll give 57 a try later when the NoScript web extension has settled down and had any teething bugs ironed out
