In the quick moments I've used it (it actually annoyed me the first time I started it)
I haven't found any.
I must say that I personally am far from impressed by the 4.0 beta's they are even slower than 3.x (as far possible)
for me. Safari is running circles around it while loading and during browsing.

Its great that they claim such a release cycle though it are just version numbers, due to shorter times between releases the changesets between will
be a lot smaller so 5.0 would be 4.3 or something like that when using the old release cycle. I don't get why so many software companies have this much focus on "major releases" does Firefox 5.x imply that its much better than Firefox 4.x? Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with a shorter release cycle to get stuff out to the end user quicker, though I can hardly believe that they can build/test/release 3 major releases in a year (seeing how long 4.x took)
so it will most likely be more like 3 somewhat larger releases per year which IMHO shouldn't get a major versioning number increment but that's obvious a choice of them
