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.

Um, I must ask, what feature would you want that isn't included?

I really don't know. I never would have wanted tabs/rss until FF came along, and I'm sure there's other stuff out there just like that. I also remember reading about a couple features that were dropped from ver. 2 in favor of waiting until ver. 3. I was also hoping for a better looking interface, but so far its just more of the same. I realize it's just a beta right now but I was hoping for something more exciting with 2.0.

LOL what features does anyone want any browser to have....

Its a friggin' browser -- not an view webpages with it.

But keep complaining about lack of features -- its entertaining at least.
