Firefox 2.0 alpha available

Filed under
Moz/FF

If you aspire to be an early adopter, here's your chance. An alpha version of Firefox 2.0 called "Bon Echo" is available on Mozilla's FTP servers, and you can choose from the Windows version, Mac OS X version, or Linux version.

Due out later this year, Firefox 2.0 promises a handful of improvements and new features over what is already a very solid browser. (By way of disclosure, I use Firefox 1.5 exclusively on my PCs and the Mozilla-derived Camino 1.0 on my non-Intel Macs.)

It's alpha software, so be prepared for crashes and other unpleasant experiences while using it. Having said that, I've been using it for a couple of hours without any problems. A handful of my extensions don't work with 2.0a1, so if you have become reliant on one or two Firefox extensions, you'll probably find yourself reverting to 1.5 before long.

Version 2.0 has a handful of new features.

Full Story.
