Firefox 2 Is Here

Firefox 2Mozilla has released earlier than expected final version of Firefox 2.

Just a couple days after Microsoft released Internet Explorer 7, Firefox releases Firefox 2. As Ars Technica notes, it is available earlier than expected as a ftp download.

Firefox 2 offers some visual and usability improvements, like enhanced search capabilities and improved tabbed browsing, and some useful new features like built-in phishing protection, inline spell checking, browsing session resuming. The Session Restore feature restores windows, tabs, text typed in forms, and in-progress downloads from the last user session. It will be activated automatically when installing an application update or extension, and users will be asked if they want to resume their previous session after a system crash.

Firefox 3 is planned for May 2007.
