Shortly after Microsoft’s release of Internet Explorer 7, Mozilla has released Firefox 2, the next generation release of the award-winning Firefox web browser.
New features in Firefox 2 include:
- Built-in phishing protection which warns users when they encounter suspected Web forgeries, and offers to return the user to their home page.
- Improved tabbed browsing: By default, Firefox will open links in new tabs instead of new windows, and each tab will now have a close tab button.
- Resuming your browsing session: The Session Restore feature restores windows, tabs, text typed in forms, and in-progress downloads from the last user session. It will be activated automatically when installing an application update or extension, and users will be asked if they want to resume their previous session after a system crash.
- Inline spell checking: A new built-in spell checker enables users to quickly check the spelling of text entered into Web forms without having to use a separate application.
