Mozilla's Firefox browser moves closer to its official 2.0 release

For you Firefox fiends out there, Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 RC has been released. Microsoft has been garnering a lot of attention recently with the public betas of its Internet Explorer 7.0 browser, so the Mozilla Foundation can now steal a bit of that limelight.

According to Steve' Bryant's blog over at eWeek, there are versions of the new browser available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X even though the official announcement isn’t expected from Mozilla until tomorrow. Features included with this latest release include anti-phishing technology, built-in spell checking, session restore, Undo Close Tab and scrolling tabs.

The people over at CyberNet have already posted a tweak guide for Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 RC, so be sure to check it out to see all of the latest perks and quirks with the new browser. And as always, be careful as this is still experimental software.

can't wait to try it.. 'session restore' and 'undo close' sound like great additional features to an already badass browser. screw IE7.

Cool. Now it will have almost as many features as the Opera browser.
