    Firefox 1.0 Preview Release


    Silly me, I did not know that the new Firefox release was out. I was still using 0.9.3.

    What do you all think about it? I have not had it long enough to form any opinions yet.

    I had some problems with the ff pre1 release. First off, the permissions on the Extensions and Themes directories were borked. That's no biggie...probably a problem with the ebuild. But when I was posting, I noticed that the arrow keys didn't work in the text box to post a reply (the one that I'm typing in now). I downgraded to 0.9.3 for now...

    My initial thoughts.

    RSS button in lower right corner = cool

    Pop-up notifier = too much like a certain Micro$oft product

    Plugin installer = cool; it was so easy I am embarassed.

    Search function = I am not sure; it may grow on me.

    I like the search but agree with the annoying i just blocked a popup. But I have had no problems.

    I'd say it's just about ready for release! Looks good, although I still think it lacks configurablity.

    1.0PR is great.

    Search feature is superb.
    Speed is improved.
    Live bookmarks/Rss is fantastic

    Roll on 1.0 final
