A brief look at a couple of new features in Firefox 2.0
Firefox ver 2.0 was released a few days back and naturally it is loaded with a host of new features some of them prominent and many more rather subtle. I found this new version to be a huge improvement from the older 1.5.x version which is bundled with most Linux distributions. These are some of the new features in ver 2.0 of Firefox which I found really interesting.
New features in Firefox 2.0
A better theme - The new Firefox 2.0 theme and user interface has been subtly revamped to provide a better user experience. For example apart from the Bookmarks menu, you have got a History menu (previously named 'Go' menu) which lists not only the recently visited websites but also the recently closed tabs. You can also open your browsing history in a side bar using the 'Ctrl+H' hot key.
Built-in Phishing protection - Think of the last time you were confronted with an email supposedly from Paypal which provided a link which directed you to a seemingly valid webpage of paypal which was actually a spoof of the original page.
