Firefox 15.0 Beta 2

Mozilla Firefox is a fast, full-featured Web browser. Firefox includes pop-up blocking, tab-browsing, integrated Google search, simplified privacy controls, a streamlined browser window that shows you more of the page than any other browser and a number of additional features that work with you to help you get the most out of your time online.

The Web is all about innovation, and Firefox sets the pace with dozens of new features to deliver a faster, more secure and customizable Web browsing experience for all.

User Experience. The enhancements to Firefox provide the best possible browsing experience on the Web. The new Firefox smart location bar, affectionately known as the "Awesome Bar," learns as people use it, adapting to user preferences and offering better fitting matches over time.

Performance. Firefox is built on top of the powerful new Gecko platform, resulting in a safer, easier to use and more personal product.

Security. Firefox raises the bar for security. The new malware and phishing protection helps protect from viruses, worms, trojans and spyware to keep people safe on the Web.

Customization. Everyone uses the Web differently, and Firefox lets users customize their browser with more than 5,000 add-ons.

I'm not sure exactly what improvements have been made since ver 15.0 has been in beta, but they are great. Now FF 15.0 performs better than palemoon, waterfox, and the nightly x64 builds. Thanks.

i agree , though i currently use aurora (16a2), i keep my firefox updated to the latest beta for some of the not so tech savvy people that use the same computer, and 15b2 has been running great so far, love the updated download manager, and i actually like the inline preferences, and with a small tweak in about:config you can enable them in 15b2 .. so far a great, speedy build that i hope continues to get better .. the only request i have is that they make SOME time of aesthetic changes (not just change for the sake of change, but maybe some new icons, a new setup layout, SOMETHING to differentiate it; no wonder FF says people dont want to upgrade: the average user is way more inclined to update their software is they can SEE some of the changes)
