I can do some tests on protocol handler and not-Tor friendly protocols
like ftp, TorButton is doing a great job here with the big ugly warning
but, as told at the talk, who cares about big ugly warning nowadays? ;-)

I'm hosting them at my home machine right now, I've already contacted H.
D. Moore about an inclusion into his decloak.net suite but, you know,
he's pretty busy right now with the framework release. I can pack up
every file in a tarball and offer it from slackware.it.

I only take a super fast look at Firefox 3.6b as it was released too
close to the conference :D
There's the fullscreen video support and... dunno, maybe the new css
fonts support may be interesting. The only thing I double checked was
the poster attribute support.
