Firefox 3 beta is here


The new release of Mozilla Firefox is ready for download. Mozilla had released this beta version on monday. Mozilla had clearly stated in their Disclaimer that

We do not recommend that anyone other than developers and testers download the Firefox beta 1 milestone release. It is intended for testing purposes only.


As expected there are some new and exciting features in the latest release like:

  • Better security;
  • Revised password management, add-on installation and download procedures;
  • More personalization with one-click bookmarking;
  • New graphics and font rendering and offline application support;
  • Improved performance with more than 300 memory leak fixes.

When compared with the Firefox 2 :
The bookmark manager is improved which provides better tagging facility and makes organising bookmarks easier.
Security features seem enhanced
The interface is similar to Firefox 2 so may be the stability will be the same.
