Mozilla also added WebSocket updates, support for an HTML5 native right-click menus, and various HTML5 media elements. The big benefit here is for developers who want to add a bunch of audio and video tidbits without neutering performance.
If you'd rather not play around with beta code, you won't have to wait very long for Firefox 8 to go gold. It's currently scheduled to go live November 8, 2011.
The twitter search option certainly sounds interesting, I will have to try it.
So when does FF-23 come out then?
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
Why is Mozilla in a hurry? Who wants a new browser upgrade every month? I was way happy when 3.0 came out then forced onto 4.0 and before u realize its 6.x and now 8.x ! WT Hell is happening here! This hurried release cycle is somewhat reducing the interest in FF.

I always used Firefox to be my Nr. 1 Browser, I was really happy that they are releasing SOO much Updates in the last time, but I remained very disappointed. I waited for Mac OS X Lion support already since Firefox 4. 4 Releases after, still no support for our new lovely Operating System.
I'm not really into twitter, although Fire Fox 8 beta would be quite interesting to download. I'm also not interested in any social networks either.
There really is no need for a social network to be integrated directly into a browser. This is something that should be handled by plugins (which I would be fine if FF developed) so those of us who don't care don't have to have it.
Firefox has not increased the speed of their update cycle, all they really did was change the way their version numbering system worked.
I have Nightly 10.0a at home. Use it from Time to time. Seems like FF is just trying to catch up to Chrome in version number. We should have 8 before the end of the year and 9 sometime in Q1 2012..
