There has been quite a gap between the official Firefox 1.5 release (November 2005) and the forthcoming Firefox 2.0 release, also due in November. However, this means that the Mozilla developers have been busy with new features for this big release.
As soon as you install Firefox 2.0 Release Candidate 2 - and this is the first version I've installed and used and not reverted back to 1.5.x - you'll notice that the user interface has received a minor overhaul. For instance, you have the facility to close tabs by clicking a small 'x' on each tab. Sure, that's not an innovation, but it improves your browsing experience. There are plenty of new features too, such as anti-phishing support.
