Firefox 2.0 Rc 1 has been released.


The next version of Firefox, the release candidate has been released and is available for download. A word of advice, this is a release candidate and not the official release, so many of your current extensions may not, and probably will not, work with this version.

I would advice anyone who is not technically savvy to avoid downloading this version until the bugs are worked out and that more themes and extensions are updated to help support the new release.

I did download it and am currently using it, there are a few new things and such as the spell checker for any online forums or anywhere you can actually type. For example if I misspell a word in my blog it identifies it and underlines sit much in the way that Microsoft Office would do.

They have combined the Themes and Add ons, so if you are one who likes to change themes or add extensions, you will want to go to the Tools menu and select Add-Ons. This will allow you to manage all your themes and extensions.
