I was going to say nice things about Firefox 3...

Well, I have tried Firefox 3 and I really like a lot of the things that I saw. The "awesome" bar really isn't that awesome for an Epiphany user, but hey, it is a first cut. The GTK integration really makes me happy. Mozilla has been working on Linux support. Then I hit this dialogue:

Now I am very angry. Not only did Firefox prevent me from going to site I know is safe, there is no easy to way to say "I trust this page". And yes, that defeats the point of this dialogue, but the reality for the Web consumer is that I have no control over these kind of websites. Now what do I do?

This little change also breaks Epiphany because if you hit one of these sits, it refuses to render anything until you restart the browser. Guess I will go back to waiting for that Webkit backend to Epiphany.
