Mozilla finally released the public beta 1 of its popular Firefox browser today, showcasing a few of the features users can expect to see in the final 2.0 release in late August. Along with some expected UI improvments, you also get phishing protection for the first time, safeguarding you from information stealing websites. RSS also gets a major upgrade, coming complete with a built-in manager. Bookmarks are now more intelligent, giving a microsummary of a given webpage and when it was last updated.
However, don’t expect the jump from 1.5 to 2.0 to be as massive as it looks on paper. Mozilla never intended this to be a major upgrade, rather something that paved the way for the major 3.0 release next year.
