Five things you’ll love about FireFox 3
A couple of months ago, I downloaded a beta version of Firefox 3 just to look at the new ideas Mozilla was working on. My intention was to try it for a couple days, then switch back to Firefox 2. I wasn’t worried about stability (it’s a browser after all — what’s the worst that can happen?). But the beta wasn’t compatible with lots of my favorite extensions and who wants to live without them?
As it turns out, I’m still using a prerelease version of Firefox (they’re at Release Candidate 1 now) and loving it, even without my beloved add-ons. The improvements Mozilla has made to the browser, while subtle, are so helpful that I didn’t want to give them up. Here are five of my favorites.
