Firefox 2.0 released

http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/
Go download the best web browser out there. I just upgraded myself and it loads pages much quicker than previous incarnations, it seems.

Plus all of my extensions work with FF2 such as GMail notifier and ImageZoom.

I'm so torn, not sure if my theme and extensions will work and I use a couple of them constantly. I guess I could just back up this profile and try it.

Half of my add-ons were not compatible and I lost all my themes

i got it yesterday

some of my add-ons don't work either, but several of them are irrelevant because what they added is now a standard feature in Firefox.

Got mine all setup the way I like it. My old theme doesn't have an update for 2.0 yet, so I moved on to a nice little number called 'Maxi'. Search for it on the mozilla themes database, it's quite noice.

Yeah I heard session saving is finally built-in? That would replace one of my must haves.

Just don't close Firefox when you have something nasty open, or you're friend is in for a suprise when she goes to check her email

Done and done!

I like that external links and Gmail messages now automatically open a new tab instead of a new browser.

Does anyone know how to get a new tab to open up the homepage instead of a blank? When I used to use the plugin "tab mix plus", it would open up the page with the homepage loaded.

Other than that, my theme is still yet to be updated to 2.0, but that's alright for now.

I do like the auto spell checker built in. Now I can see MSWord-like red lines rebuking me.

Neither does mine. I decided to go with the Halloween theme in the meantime.

Hey Canadiens, what interface of Windows are you using? It looks really nice.

Meh if you've got a Mac you're probably using Apple's browser Safari, which is no slouch compared to what most people use - Internet Explorer

Oh, but Firefox is leaps and bounds ahead of Safari.


Martha, download Firefox, it's worth it and it won't break your Mac, I promise
