Mozilla Firefox 2 Beta 2 Milestone Released
Friday September 1st, 2006
Several days later, only one issue (not reproducible) where it froze for ages on trying to load the pdf plugin. This appears to be a good, reliable build; well done to the developers.
I'm using this as my 'normal' browser up until the point in each day when for my work I need one of the vital features from the web developer toolbar extension, which isn't updated - so from then on (because I'm too lazy to quit it) I'll generally be back to 1.5. Out of curiosity, does the 'beta' designation mean there's an API freeze and it is therefore safe for extension developers to test their extensions and update the supported version? Or does that point not come until the first release candidate?
