Firefox 3 dissected: new features explored
At this point, it really doesn?t look any different than version 2 of Firefox. It opens up, by default, to a page on Mozilla.org which tells me I am using an Alpha 1 version of Gran Paradiso and that it is not a final version. I pull up PCMech.com and it seems to render just like it usually does. Even going through the menu options, it really is no different than Firefox 2. The main differences with this early version are in the rendering engine and internal programming methodologies. In other words, the differences are under the surface and not really noticeable to an end user.
