Maximum PC: Firefox, one of the greatest PC technologies

| It is a credible and fun list that includes flash memory (82), Ubuntu (50), 
| the Thinkpad 700 (38), the original IBM PC keyboard (21), MP3 (11), Doom (10) 
| and Mosaic (4) among my favorite inductees. The list   
| is topped by an indisputable disrupter that effectively saved humanity from 
| millions of headaches. 


Review: Firefox 3 Beta Answers Some Questions, Raises Others

,----[ Quote ]
| CRN Test Center downloaded Firefox 3 Beta 1 from Mozilla for a peek to get an 
| idea of what users can expect when Firefox 3 is officially launched. Since 
| this is a beta, the browser is intended for testing purposes only. While no 
| one expects the browser to be production-ready now, if history is any guide, 
| the likelihood of users going ahead and upgrading increases the longer the 
| product stays in beta.     


What’s new in Firefox 3?

| Beta 1 of Firefox 3 was released today. I found a few bugs, but overall it’s 
| looking like there are some excellent new features and improvements. 


Firefox 3 Beta 1 review

,----[ Quote ]
| This week Mozilla released the first beta of Firefox 3. Originally scheduled 
| for mid July, the delay responds to the very long list of features this new 
| version brings. Eight alphas and an estimated 14 months under development are 
| both firsts for a Firefox upgrade but again are necessary for the amount of 
| improvements and new features Firefox 3 will bring.    



Firefox 3 Beta 1 is a winner

,----[ Quote ]
| According to Mozilla's blurb: "Firefox 3 Beta 1 is based on the new Gecko 1.9 
| Web rendering platform, which has been under development for the past 27 
| months and includes nearly 2 million lines of code changes, fixing more than 
| 11,000 issues." That means little to me. All I'm interested in is 
| performance, reliability, look and feel. And from what I've seen so far, 
| Firefox 3 Beta 1 succeeds spectacularly in all areas.

| Does Firefox 3.0 beta 1 do a better job of handling memory than earlier 
| versions?  In a test put Firefox 3.0 beta up against Firefox in a 
| series of tests.

“Beautiful” tab switching for Firefox 3

,----[ Quote ]
| Performance-wise, CPU usage spiked from 2-3% to 45-50% during high speed tab 
| switching (that is, I kept Ctrl + Tab pressed for a while), but immediately 
| went back to previous cool 2-3% usage.  
| Firefox 3 Beta 1 is expected within the next couple of weeks.

Update on the Firefox 3 Linux Theme

,----[ Quote ]
| Work on the new linux theme for Firefox 3 is progressing nicely due to a very 
| active group of contributers. To match the operating system’s theme, 
| Firefox’s navigation toolbar will use native GTK icons.   


Firefox 3 Beta Shows Promise

| The group that makes the Firefox browser Mozilla has released a preview of 
| the next Firefox 3 Web browser that aims to boosts security, speed, and ease 
| of use. The release is tad delayed than originally expected, but from the 
| early looks of the Firefox 3 beta 1 browser it was worth the wait
