Firefox 3 already

Firefox 2 is hardly out that developers are already working hard on the new version 3 as shown by the apparition of an alpha version on the FTP server.

Some visible improvements:

  • Bookmarks will be replaced with “places” that will end in a left-side menu (an innovation to be tested).
  • Tabs will be easier to sort and re-organize (as in Opera).
  • Auto-update of the browser will be possible (good for reliability, security and ease-of-use).

Reminder: An alpha version of any software ahs no good reason for being stable or debugged. So, nobody will be surprised if the cold-blooded testers have bad surprises. You have been warned now.
