That would be my favourite.

I use Conkeror (which is a XULRunner application and hence depends on
xulrunner) with 3.6 since it is in experimental and it works without
problems since a year or so. Ubuntu has the Debian package with just
slight modification of some defaults together with xulrunner-1.9.2 in
Lucid 10.04 LTS. They just had to backport a few upstream fixes.


   Cons: We lose version 3.6, which has several advantages over 3.5, and
   keep 3.5, which is already very outdated.

Right. That's why I want to see 3.6 in unstable as soon as possible
independently of the state of 4.0.

I concur with Axel. Been using iceweasel 3.6 since soon after it hit experimental, and stuff like vlc/unstable work like a champ.
