Tour of Firefox 3 Beta 2


Firefox 3 Beta 2 has just been released with about 900 improvements from the last beta, according to these release notes. Updates include anti-virus integration, malware protection, one-click site information check, resumable downloading, tab saving on exit, one-click bookmarking, and much more. Now, I couldn’t really show you everything included in the Firefox 3 Beta 2 release, so I decided to just give you a tour of things that you’ll see almost immediately after downloading it. I’m definitely impressed so far. Be sure to read the release notes for a full explanation. Here’s my screencast tour of Firefox 3 Beta 2:

  1. More beta features? 😮 Greeaat another downloading time. V.v
    I hope this proves just as good as 2.0 or better.

  2. There’s one cool feature I’ve always wanted for firefox — a keyboard shortcut for switching between tabs, kinda like an alt-tab idea, just for the tabs in one firefox window — is it on here?

    I have downloaded Beta 2 but do not see the places folder you show in the video. Am I missing something? Do I have to enable it? Can’t seem to find it in preferences.

  4. I use Opera and I’ m very pleased.I think that Opera is the best

  6. @ Peter – The “places” and “smart bookmarks” should automatically be installed in your bookmarks toolbar. Do you have the “one-click” bookmark star in your address bar?
