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.

Win back? How is it better? FF has so many extension and customizable features, Opera is another superior choice to IE7.

IE7 fixes what Microsoft should have done AGES ago, but was too stupid to do anything and thus lost enthusiast user base and should continue to lose other users.

Even if IE7 is “just as good” (which it isn’t and most likely never will be) you aren’t going to have people switching back for no good reasons (brand loyalty isn’t something that Microsoft readily commands...)

And while the thought of having multiple browsers sounds cool, it just isn’t practical, you only need one and thus only use one. I have all 3 major browsers installed (IE, FF, Opera) and I find myself using FF most of the time, Opera occasionally just to mess around, and IE only whenever there’s a broken website (which are dramatically shrinking in number with new web standards)
