Firefox 2.0 alpha available

Filed under
Moz/FF

If you aspire to be an early adopter, here's your chance. An alpha version of Firefox 2.0 called "Bon Echo" is available on Mozilla's FTP servers, and you can choose from the Windows version, Mac OS X version, or Linux version.

Due out later this year, Firefox 2.0 promises a handful of improvements and new features over what is already a very solid browser. (By way of disclosure, I use Firefox 1.5 exclusively on my PCs and the Mozilla-derived Camino 1.0 on my non-Intel Macs.)

It's alpha software, so be prepared for crashes and other unpleasant experiences while using it. Having said that, I've been using it for a couple of hours without any problems. A handful of my extensions don't work with 2.0a1, so if you have become reliant on one or two Firefox extensions, you'll probably find yourself reverting to 1.5 before long.

Version 2.0 has a handful of new features.

Full Story.

  • Zanshin 0.2.2 transition release
    Three years, five months and eleven days... yes, it's the elapsed time since our last release announcement. But don't despair! We're still alive and kicking. We've been busy working on our next release which is much more ambitious than the previous one. As part of this future release, we had to adjust a bit how we store some information. That is why today we are announcing a transitional minor release. Behold Zanshin 0.2.2!
  • All the yummies at Akademy 2015
  • Fruits of Akademy
    For the second time I had the chance to attend Akademy, this time in cold and rainy La Coruña. It has been a week of interesting talks, good food (except for one Tortilla incident), and hacking. [...] KRunner History is Back Supposedly this was one of the reason I still saw quite a few people running Plasma 4 during the conference but now there’s no more reason not to do the switch! ;)
