  • Firefox 2.0 RC1

    Just opened FF and received the pleasant surprise that 2.0 RC1 was available for download. Glad to see they met their milestone. If it's possible, RC1 even seems a bit faster then Beta 2 on my machine.

    Now if only my extensions would get updates soon so they work. :)

    Open Source is great!

      Not especially, just feels a bit more polished and faster then Beta 2. The GUI seems to have been tweaked a little, the first thing I noticed is the subtle changes to the tabs in the GUI. I'm just happy it's gone RC1 because most of the extensions I use have been waiting for RC1 or later to update.

      I hacked ForecastFox based upon a thread I found posted on a forum somewhere and could probably do it again but I'll wait and see if they release an official update in the next couple of days.

        Huh? RC2 was before RC1?

          He meant Beta 2.

            I like the tweaks that they have made to the tab menu when you have a ton going across. They shrink to a certain size and then just scroll. Been running the beta for a while now, maybe since Beta 1. The biggest thing that I don't like about FF2 is that not very much of the plugins I use work with it yet. Hopefully they will start to update them. At least the most important (imho) has been ported already, adblock and the filterset.g update.

              I haven't up'd to 2.0 yet because it doesn't meet any needs I have.

              Adblock and Filtersetg... good lord... those two extensions make the entire "use Firefox" argument hands down.

                What's Filtersetg? I have Adblock and love that program, but remember that when you visit your favourite sites to shut it off so you can help support the site and let the get cash for ads.

                Another really good extension is IEView.

                  It's an extension that automatically updates the filters for AdBlock.

                    Sweet, I think I will grab this extension then. Just hope it doens't block my ads on my website.

                      Anyone having trouble with PDF files? I'm finding they cause the browser to freeze. I'm running Acrobat 7 Pro, fully updated.

                        What I noticed about PDF's is that the initial load of a PDF freezes the browser, but if you just wait it usually starts working not to long after.

                          agreed - use that one a lot... unfortunately :/

                              I have two things.

                              First. Another really good extension for FF is the FasterFox extension. The extension basically tweeks the core FF settings to allow faster computers and internet connections get better performance.

                              Second thing. Is FF2 much better with memory management and is it any better than FF1?

                              Thanks.
