I’m a big Firefox fan, but recently, I was forced to downgrade from .9x to .8 because of certain bugs that had been introduced (OS X version). Even though it was frustrating to have to roll back, Firefox is still my favorite browser, so I’m really hoping for a better experience with the 1.0 preview release. It’s still a “technology release,” which means “While this software works well enough to be relied upon as your primary browser in most cases, we [the Firefox team] make no guarantees of its performance or stability,” but it has enough interesting new features (Live Bookmarks, improved find, Password Manager encryption), that I’m very curious, and anxious to give it a try. All we need now is for Firefox to come with Flash!
You can check out the new 1.0 preview release at the Firefox page on mozilla.org.
