September 23 - Firefox 2

Firefox 2 Beta 2 is out, and from the looks of things, Firefox 2 is good to go. As far as ourselves and Gadgetell can tell, new features include:

An inferface update & built-in phishing protection.

Enhanced search engine management and search suggestions for Google, Yahoo! and

Improvements to tabbed browsing, including the ability to re-open recently closed tabs.

Firefox will resume from where you left off after a system crash or browser restart.

Better support for previewing and subscribing to Web feeds.

Inline spell checking in Web forms.

The ability to create bookmarks with “Live Titles” for Web sites that offer microsummaries.

New Add-ons manager that simplifies management of extensions and themes.

Support for JavaScript 1.7 (you'll notice the difference on our homepage).

So, all in all, very good and happy news for the FF community and developers alike. Download version 1.5 now by clicking on the button in our sidebar! When FF2 is released, we'll let you know. Just click the button in the sidebar then like last time to download. Firefox really is safer than IE, honest. I've never got a virus whilst using FF, but have on more than one occasion using IE. Come to think of it, the people who I know who've had viruses have all used IE. After instructing them to use FF, none of them have had any problems. Funny that.
