Firefox The Second

So, Firefox 2.0 is out .. and the people did cheer.

My five seconds with it reveals ..

Changes

  • great new look
  • Memory baby! Pages on closing, Plugins
  • changed the interface for extensions/themes, bundled them together into one window
  • shortcut for extensions/themes now doesn’t work
  • shortcuts for some individual extensions don’t work (reported by Dan)

My Extensions Not Compatible

I know this is pretty crazy, Firefox 2.0 is just out, but i thought it might be of interest.

  • Download Manager Tweak
  • Inline Autocomplete
  • Live Writerfox
  • Tab Mix Plus

I wasn’t using Inline Autocomplete anyway. Live Writerfox was just sitting there. Not sure about the other two .. perhaps  the new features of Firefox 2.0 have squeezed them out? Not sure.

Anyway, here’s some piccies.

– You can see that the Menu links for Extensions and Themes are now merged into "Add-ons"

– Here’s the Add-ons window. Extensions and Themes are now tabs (well, not normal looking tabs .. nice pretty ones)

– Sexy Tabs! (vanilla, right outta the box)

– Some more pretties .. buttons have had a makeover.

I haven’t got any news on actual grunt, processes, how it handles load. This is just a two-second overview. Time will give us the other things.

Cheers,
