Mozilla Releases Answer to IE7

Mozilla released a new version of Firefox yesterday hoping to steal the spotlight away from IE7 with their Firefox 2.

Firefox 2 has new security features that include anti-phishing technology and a completely redesigned interface made up from user feedback and input from organizations like NASA.

Other new features include:

  • Session memory
  • Improved RSS Feed Management
  • A close button on each tab
  • An undo close button feature for when you close the wrong tab

Most of the new features are fairly self-explanatory, with the exception of the Session Memory feature. This new feature remembers that last pages that were open in Firefox when the browser was closed. When the browser is reopened, the previous pages also reopen.

As expected there has been quite a buzz surrounding this new release of Firefox, and Mozilla has set up two different download servers in hopes of serving as many requests as possible in the next few days.

    If you had to pick which one would you use?

    With all the hubbub that’s been going around Microsoft, it’s a wonder that anyone still uses IE anymore, even if it does come standard. Firefox has quite a reputation for being safer in most areas than IE has in the past, or at least you never hear about them.

    I just updated to Firefox 2, and I must say I’m quite impressed. If you have Firefox, I would definitely suggest upgrading ASAP!
