Have been using it for a day now and migrated everything from Chrome. The Firefox Quantum features a great speed improvement, indeed, and a sleek new UI. However, I don't really like that the address and the search bar aren't taking the whole empty space but are rather constricted in the center of the toolbar. This creates some awkward blank space around them and on the right side, it feels like there are several missing toolbar icons. Everything else I've seen about the UI feels great, especially the tabs, the colors and how unobtrusive the new UI is in the browsing experience.
It might be me, but I have also observed some issues with pages rendering (the Firefox install I'm currently running is clean from ad-blockers and such plugins). For example, when I open a startup page on BetaList, the main image is never loaded.
I especially like the sync feature and the ability to easily make page (or element) screenshots directly within the browser and without looking for thrid-party extensions.Ivan Penchev has used this product for one day.

Very rare render bugs.
I've been playing with Nightly on and off for the past 6 months and I switched to Firefox Developer Edition as my daily driver whenever it switched over to using the new engine (~2 months ago) just to "try it out".
Two months later and I'm still "trying it out"! It's really that good. It is just a slight but very noticible speed increase and knowing that I'm not giving google allll my data without a bit of a struggle that makes me strongly reccomend it to anyone who will listen.Rich Smith has used this product for one month.
