If you haven’t downloaded it already, Mozilla has issued a preview release of Firefox 3 Release Candidate 1. It is designed for ‘testing purposes only’…they want developers and the community as a whole to provide feedback! With your input the final release version will be that much better.
Firefox 3 will offer improved performance and stability, mostly due to the fact that it is based on the Gecko 1.9 web rendering platform. 1-click site info, malware protection, a new web forgery protection page and more is also going getting tweaked in the latest build.
One thing is for sure… When Firefox 3 officially drops it is going to be more solid and stable than ever… and offer more features that we will all benefit from. I especially appreciate the attention to security improvements, including malware and forgery protection.
The first thing you will probably notice upon installing the new release candidate, is how much the design feels like Safari. Looks like Mozilla has taken some design cues from the Safari browser and have implemented them into this version. I like it!
