Firefox 2.0 Release Today

According to reports, the final version of Firefox 2.0 will be available for download sometime today.

The final version is very similar to the last release candidate, RC3, which reportedly got a very good response, and has been hence finalized as the final version, to be branded as Firefox 2.0.

Firefox 2 includes features such as built-in anti-phishing controls, built-in RSS and XML feed-viewing capabilities, and a new inline spell checker. It comes with an improved tabs feature, including closing and reopening of individual tabs more easily, plus a history of previous tabs opened.

According to experts though, users of Firefox 1.5 will not find much of a difference between the two, as far as user interface is concerned.
Firefox 2.0 will be available for download from the Mozilla homepage or from getfirefox.com.

Interestingly, the release of Firefox 2.0 comes soon after that of Internet Explorer 7 by Microsoft.

note:- by the time of posting of this blog it was not available for download at getfirefox.com
