Firefox 2.0 Alpha 1 Released

Update: CNET has posted a brief video (just over one minute), which shows you Places, the RSS feeds, and the placement changes for History. ****************** Version 2.0 of Firefox promises to have many changes -- including the interface. The first alpha release is out, but unless you are a real beta tester, I wouldn't download it. It is not a stable release; wait for August for that. Although this release is not yet complete, some of the changes so far include:
  • Updated/new extension manager, including a function that will block bad extensions from running
  • Updated RSS detection and feed reading
  • New bookmarks/history function called "places;" easier to bookmark
  • Updated look -- colors and icons
