Firefox 2.0 Gets Closer to Release

Mozilla Corporation on Tuesday released the first official release candidate of Firefox 2.0, signaling the second-generation browser is nearing completion. Previously slated for release in August, Mozilla pushed back version 2.0 until October due to last-minute bugs and security issues.

New features in Firefox 2.0 include enhancements in security, tabbed browsing, performance, and extensions. The browser update also includes a built-in spell checking and an anti-phishing feature, much like Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7. JavaScript 1.7 and improved subscribing of RSS feeds are also among the additions.
