Mozilla Corp., which will release the first beta of its Firefox 2.0 browser Tuesday, posted Windows, Mac, and Linux release candidates on its FTP servers over the weekend.
The browser wars are heating up, as the first beta of Firefox 2.0 is due on Tuesday July 11th, and Internet Explorer version 7.0 is now on it's third beta release.
Recently, I have been pondering why is Firefox so darn popular? This is a question that I honestly ask myself sometimes, often while browsing the web from within the browser itself. The real trick is that there are so many different ways to answer this.
For a software company that is rapidly cutting into Microsoft's share of the Web browser market, Mozilla Corp. has a particularly unimpressive European headquarters.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer just had a chat with Blake Ross of the Firefox team. But while it's a good read, the interview is short on future direction. Let's take a look at the published plans to see what's coming up in the next couple of major Firefox releases.
When you're hardcore about tabbed browsing, Tabbrowser Extensions is the way to go. When I'm writing or researching, I often have 20 or 30 web pages open. My desktop would be in chaos and my productivity overing near zero without tabbed browsing.
Blake Ross turned 21 a week ago, and he marked the event by appearing before a crowded City Club of Cleveland luncheon. Why would this young man — presently a college dropout — draw the interest of the venerated speakers’ forum? The answer can be found in two words: Mozilla Firefox.
Keeping up with the World Cup can be a pain, especially if you're at work and have to keep one eye peeled for your boss. If you could use a better way to catch the latest scores -- and if you only want soccer results -- drop by Mozilla.org and try out Boris Ruf's Footiefox extension.
I often write that the Mozilla Foundation's Firefox browser does thus and such, or doesn't do this or that other thing. In truth, there are other handy but hard-to-discover ways of configuring Firefox to behave according to your wishes.
Mozilla Corporation is confident that its Firefox browser will maintain its security lead over Microsoft's forthcoming Internet Explorer 7.
Firefox 188.8.131.52 is a security update that is part of our ongoing program to provide a safe Internet experience for our customers. We recommend that all users upgrade to this latest version.
Mozilla has reached the latest development milestone for its next-generation Firefox 2.0 "Bon Echo" browser with a little anti-phishing help from Google.
Bon Echo Alpha 3 is the third developer milestone focused on testing the core functionality provided by many new features and changes to the platform scheduled for Firefox 2.

The not-for-profit organisation says it is looking at how to share its newfound Mozillions (well, millions) with the volunteers who work on Firefox and Thunderbird.
Mozilla, maker of the open source Firefox web browser and Thunderbird email client, says a reliance on proprietary technologies is still an obstacle for IT directors looking to deploy open source in the enterprise.
The use of Firefox, the free open source web browser developed by the Mozilla Corporation, is higher in Canada than any other country in the world according to recent research by onestat.com.
Pete Macomber, a Venice-based aspiring director of commercial spots and music videos, has won the grand prize in the Firefox Flicks video contest sponsored by Mozilla Corp., the developer and distributor of the Firefox Internet browser.
My love/hate relationship with Thunderbird, the Mozilla Foundation's email client, continues. On the one hand, Thunderbird's a very good open-source email/Usenet/RSS client. It's easy to filter, search, and sort messages with Thunderbird -- even with multiple mail accounts. And, unlike Evolution, my favorite email program, it's also available on Windows and Mac OS, besides Linux.
So, what's the problem?
Released Friday afternoon was Mozilla Firefox Bon Echo Alpha 2 -- the second development milestone in the road to Mozilla Firefox 2.0, which is expected for a release later this year. In this latest Firefox 2.0a2 release, which is targeted solely at developers and testers, are quite a few prominent changes.
