For those who been using Firefox, you would have known about this by now but anyway for those who don’t, here is the deal from Firefox:-
Introduce a friend to Firefox and if he/she downloads it by 15th September 2006, both of your names will be listed on the Firefox Friends Wall and in Firefox 2.
With the improvements made on Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3 (it’s not perfect yet – the security features sometimes is a big headache to use), I guess it was only a matter of time before Firefox release 22.214.171.124 is revamped and updated to meet IE7 head-on. Some of the improvements noted in Firefox 2 are listed here and here. Firefox 2 is still being tested before it is released to the public – further changes maybe queued in the final release (keeping the fingers crossed).
On the onset, the changes made to Firefox 2 seems like were made to meet the enhancements already made in IE7. So, for those of you who are expecting something drastic may be a little disappointed. Of course, being an open source that it is, we can always find a catchy theme to dress up Firefox to look flashier than the dull looking IE7.
