    I see that 3.6.18 has been released.

    I figured version 3x would be dropped completely after version 5x was released.

    the funny (for everyone else but me part) of the mess is that I not only couldn't figure out where the heck the drop arrow went to skip back more than one page at a time (it's now a right click function) but when shown still decided that 3.6.17 was better.

    Need my easy-on-the-eyes white hart theme. :)

    I just got version 5 and it does seem faster than version 4, which was faster than 3.

    if I update to version 5, is it easy to roll back if it isn't to my liking or would I have to uninstall?

    yup. Uninstall and then go download 3.16.whatever. Works like a peach. Just be sure to back up your bookmarks.
