| Firefox Beta 3 has been released some days ago, I have installed it and made
| a little comparison with Firefox 2.0 to see some of the changes.
|
| Here I am comparing them with screen shots, side by side when that is
| possible, because there are some features in 3 that are not present in 2.

Maximum PC: Firefox, one of the greatest PC technologies

| It is a credible and fun list that includes flash memory (82), Ubuntu (50),
| the Thinkpad 700 (38), the original IBM PC keyboard (21), MP3 (11), Doom (10)
| and Mosaic (4) among my favorite inductees. The list
| is topped by an indisputable disrupter that effectively saved humanity from
| millions of headaches.

Review: Firefox 3 Beta Answers Some Questions, Raises Others

,----[ Quote ]
| CRN Test Center downloaded Firefox 3 Beta 1 from Mozilla for a peek to get an
| idea of what users can expect when Firefox 3 is officially launched. Since
| this is a beta, the browser is intended for testing purposes only. While no
| one expects the browser to be production-ready now, if history is any guide,
| the likelihood of users going ahead and upgrading increases the longer the
| product stays in beta.

Firefox 3 Beta 1 review

,----[ Quote ]
| This week Mozilla released the first beta of Firefox 3. Originally scheduled
| for mid July, the delay responds to the very long list of features this new
| version brings. Eight alphas and an estimated 14 months under development are
| both firsts for a Firefox upgrade but again are necessary for the amount of
| improvements and new features Firefox 3 will bring.

Firefox 3 Beta 1 is a winner

,----[ Quote ]
| According to Mozilla's blurb: "Firefox 3 Beta 1 is based on the new Gecko 1.9
| Web rendering platform, which has been under development for the past 27
| months and includes nearly 2 million lines of code changes, fixing more than
| 11,000 issues." That means little to me. All I'm interested in is
| performance, reliability, look and feel. And from what I've seen so far,
| Firefox 3 Beta 1 succeeds spectacularly in all areas.
