Far from terrible, Firefox’s twos are good; very, very good. One week after the general release of Internet Explorer’s version 7, Mozilla has made Firefox 2.0 available to the general public. While the final products seem very similar, the changes to Firefox are relatively subtle when comparing the two programs. This is largely due to the fact that Microsoft’s IE 7 represents the first major update to their browser in five years, and they’ve added many features that are new to Internet Explorer.Users of the Firefox browser will notice a few changes in the way the new version of the browser looks and functions. Below is a short list of new features available in the new version of Firefox.
- Improved tabbed browsing
- Better security features
- Advanced RSS capabilities
- Improved extension and add-on management
- Enhanced search features
- Lighter use of system resources
