Firefox 2.0

Firefox 2.0 is scheduled to be released this afternoon. The install files have already been found on Firefox mirror sites if you want to get the jump on things, otherwise just wait a few more hours.

Among the new features is a spell checker used on all textarea fields. If you misspell a word a dotted red underline appears. I think that’s brilliant. If you right-click on the misspelled word Firefox will give you a list of possible replacements. Tabbed browsing has been updated a bit with the ability to undo closing a tab. The history menu also has a recently closed tabs section now.

Looks like a solid release. Still miles ahead of IE.

One thought on “Firefox 2.0

  1. Wow you are right there is a spell checker now on every textarea! Very cool stuff got to be honest. I had seen it on a forum earlier today but thought it was a spell checker implemented in the forum’s WYSIWYG editor. I’m very happy with the 2.0 release. It’s by far the best browser out there and miles ahead of IE. Things are looking good!
