Firefox 3 Beta 2 First Impressions

Filed under
Moz/FF

I would hope many of our regular readers are aware that the TrustedReviews staff are avid fans of the Firefox web browser. Ever since the beta releases of the first version started to become available back in 2004 we've been fans of its ease of use and versatility, and we've been using it ever since. However, when Microsoft released the latest version of its Internet Explorer browser, IE7, last year, arguably the single biggest selling point of Firefox was wiped out in one fell swoop.

You see, while the popularity of Firefox is due to a number of elements, including its vast array of add-ons that enable you to perform almost whatever task you can imagine, and its open source development, the predominant reason it grabbed so many people's attention was its tabbed browsing. Ok, it wasn't actually the first to market with tabbed browsing - that honour goes to Opera - but many people had been put off by Opera simply because you had to pay for it, even though that was no longer the case.

However, just in the nick of time the Mozilla Foundation has pulled its finger out and released beta versions of Firefox 3, with a view to officially unveiling its latest and greatest in the next few months. So, with beta version 2 now available for Mac and PC, I thought I'd take you on a trip round what in my opinion is going to be the best browser available in the foreseeable future.

ASF publishes long-overdue Code Of Conduct

We pride ourselves at The Apache Software Foundation on our principles of "community over code" and "don't be a jerk". But, alas, we've been slow to codify some of these things in public. Part of this, I'm sure, is that it’s easy to think we all just know how we're supposed to treat people, and so you shouldn't have to say, right? Read more
