The wait is over. Firefox 2.0 empowers you to browse faster, more safely and more efficiently than with any other browser. Firefox imports your Favorites, settings and other information, so you have nothing to lose.
Looking at the Petri.co.il logs I’ve noticed an interesting trend, where Firefox usage is constantly growing, compared to the percentage of readers that are using IE, and as of October 2006, Firefox consists of more than 23% of this site’s readers!
Some of the features incorporated into Firefox 2.0 include:
Security: Mozilla’s open and transparent community-driven security model helps ensure Firefox provides the safest possible online experience. Thousands of security experts and technical contributors from around the world examine and analyze the Firefox source code, uncover potential threats and vulnerabilities, and work together to quickly identify and address emerging threats. This open, distributed, innovative approach to security puts people’s interests first and delivers the safest Web experience possible.
Tabbed Browsing: Instead of opening a separate browser window for each site you want to visit, you can open multiple sites within the same window and tab between them. You can also set a group of tabs as your home page. For more information see Tabbed Browsing.
Web feeds: Firefox users can now take better advantage of the frequently updated content offered by Web sites, with increased options for handling Web feeds. Users now see a preview of the content being offered and are given the option to subscribe to a feed as a Live Bookmark, using a Web service such as Bloglines, My Yahoo!, or Google Reader, or with a desktop application.
Pop-up Window Controls: Lets you allow or suppress both popup and popunder windows.
Cookie Manager: Lets you change what Firefox will do when accepting cookies.
Download Manager: Organizes your downloads by storing them in a single window to minimize clutter. You have full access to download statistics without using unnecessary multiple windows for each download.
Image Manager: Enables you to disable images from certain web sites or disable them altogether. This is useful if you wish to decrease the amount of time it takes for web sites to load.
Customization: A full library of hundreds of free add-ons ready for your usage.
