Firefox 2.0



October 27, 2006

Just wanted to pass on a positive review of Firefox 2.0 I installed it this morning on my Mac and the upgrade went great. I didn't have any problems with extensions giving me problems (although not all of them were available for the latest code).

So far it seems faster, with a few fresh theme elements. Like the new tab management which allows you to keep a smaller window open when you are using a whole bunch of tabs.

The built in spell checker is also great for all of those web forms that we are constantly having to fill in. This feature alone makes the upgrade well worth the while.

Great job Mozilla!
