Firefox 2.0 hits FTP earlier than expected

Firefox 2.0 will be officially released tomorrow, but we have spotted what looks to be the official release in a newly-created directory on the Mozilla Foundation's FTP servers. This comes one week from the release of Firefox 2.0's third release candidate.

The latest version of Mozilla's open source browser offers aesthetic enhancements, usability improvements, and an assortment of useful new features, including support for built-in spell-checking, phishing protection, Javascript 1.7, and session persistence. Although the new features incorporated into the upcoming release are fewer and less impressive than in previous releases, Firefox 2.0 is a solid incremental improvement over the 1.5.x series.

Full Story.

While it’s fine to let the data run free on wi-fi, you’ll want to restrict your data usage when out and about. Short of switching off mobile data (which defeats the purpose of a smartphone), look under the options in the Data Usage part of the settings. Here you’ll find my wallet’s favourite Android setting of ‘restrict background data’. Now when using cellular data, apps will only pull down data when they are in the foreground and you can see them doing so. If a smartphone is all about being in control, this is the option that gives you confidence. Read more
