FireFox 2.0 scheduled for release

Mozilla Firefox has been a major contender against Microsoft’s Internet Explorer since it released version 1.0 almost two years ago. Now Mozilla is preparing to introduce Firefox 2.0 tomorrow. I was a big fan until about a year ago when I noticed problems with its speed and usability. I am still a big fan of tabbed browsing and really like a lot of the features, especially with stronger security than Microsoft Windows Internet Explorer. But I may have a hard time adopting the new version if the fixes are not resolved.

However, with Windows Internet Explorer also releasing a new version of its browser (now available) with tabbed browsing and beefed-up security, it may retain its share or possibly regain some fans in the browser market.
