Pros New tab settings, Tab exit key moved to tab itself, SpellCheck!
Cons Same firefox as before
Summary I don't think the changes made were all that drastic, but this was already a successful browser. The addition of spell check was a big deal to me though. I tend to blow through emails and even though I proof read I always seem to make mistakes. This is just another tool for me to save face and to be quite honest, both versions of Firefox have blown Internet Explorer out of the water. I switched over about a month or two ago and I have been impressed with what they have done.
Pros Can be used on almost any OS and highly customizable
Cons none I can think of
Summary I have used many different web browsers, including IE 7, and Firefox is in my opinion the best browser out there. While IE 7 might be better than IE 6, it still lags behind Firefox. Firefox can run on almost any OS, and can easily be enhanced with themes and plugins. Somthing IE cannot do. Saying Firefox sucks just because someone said IE 7 does is just childish.
Pros Inline Spellcheck, New Style, Speed as always
Cons Occasional slowdowns still, new style is alright
Summary Well, Firefox 2.0 is another nice edition of the same great browser. The new features, like Spell Check, come in handy on a regular basis and the overall look is nicely improved, though I do moderately miss the past version of the style.
Anyway, the product once again works great, though the problems with extension/theme support continues between new editions until their authors update then for the new versions
Pros Firefox's security is worth it's weight in gold
Cons Slow as molasses in January
Summary I used Firefox for about a year and was quite happy with it except for it's lack of speed. Then I discovered Opera 9. I couldn't believe how fast it is. I liked it so much that I wrote a brief article about Opera for my website. You can read it if you like at overvolt.com .
I'll try the new Friefox v2 but doubt it will replace Opera on my machine.
Pros Still a good browser. Phising filter, session restore
Cons new theme. Not that much of a upgrade
Summary Although this is subjective, I'm not too happy about the new theme.
You can't even remove the arrows next to the search bar and the url/address bar. I think firefox 1 had a cleaner, less obstrusive feel.
I like the new antiphising filter and session restore they integrated into the browser.
Otherwise, the spellchecker and new theme should be available as add-ons.
I used RC1 for a couple of days, but went back to Firefox 1 because I found little reason to update, while I prefered the look and feel of firefox 1.
