The new Firefox just came out five days ago, and I’ve had the opportunity to get an early peek at it. This update is important, because it fixes a whole slew of security and stability issues, in both Windows and Linux.
It also now has official support for Romanian and Georgian languages. Given how many Romanians I’ve been seeing on the web and particularly being involved in open source projects like the ROSLIMs Linux CD, it’s surprising that it has taken this long to get their language supported.
I think that this one will be the “sweet spot” of 2.0 releases. It cleans up a lot of issues, and runs snappy-fast and stable. As you can see, I’ve tried out several of the coolest Firefox themes and they dress up the interface quite nicely.
Themes are sometimes spotty in support with new releases. I remember that themes for 2.0 right after it came out were variously troubled, unless they’d been started previous to 1.5. So far, I haven’t found a third-party theme, extension, or plug-in that had a problem yet. All in all, I’d say this is the essential upgrade of the 2.0 series.
