On Saturday Mozilla officially released RC2 of Firefox 2.0, Neowin originally reported the release a day earlier on Friday the 6th.
Mozilla Firefox, the popular web browser, caused a stir with the original release, but apart from minor changes, visual improvements and security fixes, there haven't been a wide range of new features since the original 1.x release. This is all about to change, with the forthcoming release of Firefox 2.0, planned for October/November 2006.
This is Release Candidate 2 and the second public preview of Firefox 2.0, along with a snapshot of the forthcoming new features. It must be noted that this is only a beta and should be used for testing-purposes only. Many of the existing themes and extensions are not operating within this beta release.
Current new 2.0 features include anti-phishing support, useful for acknowledging the difference between a legitimate website and a fake site set up for the purposes of obtaining your personal information.
