Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 RC made available

By Justin Mann on July 10, 2006, 11:00 AM
If you like betas, you'll love to hear that team Mozilla is getting ready to publish Release Candidate 1 of Firefox 2 Beta. Starting tomorrow, Mozilla is expected to officially announce the release and make it easily available to anyone who wishes to try. If you want to get it on your own before then, you can retrieve the installer for your system on Mozilla's public FTP. As with all RC releases, the goal is to have as many people try it as possible before the official release, so that bugs and other quirks can be worked out. Among a host of other things, Firefox 2 includes some very neat features such as session restoring (a feature that Opera currently has) and scrolling tabs.

wow, even betas are getting RCs these days? i wonder if that makes it an alpha?

Technically, alpha builds are for internal testing and betas for end-user testing.

If it is an RC they probably just want to check for any show stopping bugs before release. So the RC is probably the final version of Beta 1 anyway.[Edited by ThomasNews on 2006-07-11 05:12:08]
