Firefox 3.0 beta 1 available and reviewed
Firefox 3 beta 1 delivers an outstanding improvement to the user experience. Unlike Firefox 2, which was a bit light on new features, Firefox 3 is practically overflowing with shiny new goodies. I’ve been using the alpha nightly builds as my primary browser for quite some time now and it has been very exciting to see new features landing every week (and sometimes painful to experience the occasional frustrating regressions). Now that we are in the beta cycle we can expect to see the reliability of the new features improve rapidly as the focus shifts towards testing and quality assurance. Despite delays and other setbacks, Firefox 3 is shaping up to be an outstanding web browser that delivers innovative new technologies while retaining Firefox’s signature ease of use.
