Firefox heads to version 3
Firefox has made Release Candidate 2 of Firefox 3 available for download I've been using this version since its release and it seems to be very stable and various commentators are lauding its speed and new features. I don't experience much of a speed change and I imagine it is micro-seconds of difference over version 2. However, if you are using an old browser, you'll probably see the difference. A key new feature is an improved location bar with an auto-complete feature that pulls in links from your bookmarks and history, so that you are able to select the appropriate link from a wide assortment. The results are ranked according to frequency of use, so if you use a link often, it will come up first. There's a full "What's new" page on the Mozilla site.
