Filed under
Software

Mozilla Corp. released the second beta of its next browser, Firefox 1.5, Friday to testers and developers.

Although there are no new features included in Beta 2, Mozilla said the follow-up to September's Beta 1 includes improvements in the automatic update system, performance and site rendering enhancements, and fixes for several security problems. A complete list of the fixes and changes to Beta 2 can be viewed on the Burning Edge Web site.

Beta 2 can be downloaded manually in versions for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux from Mozilla's Web site or FTP servers. Users of Beta 1, however, can simply wait for that edition's automatic update to kick in.

Full Story.
