With Firefox 2 just out the door, the folks at Mozilla are already making headway with Firefox 3. Now for those of you who might not be able to do the math, Firefox 3 will be the next version of Firefox that is released. One of the biggest ‘bits of news to come out of developement is that Firefox 3 will pass the Acid2 test.
The first development release of Firefox 3, code name Gran Paradiso, is now available for testing, and against what I previously thought this release actually matters.
It happens that the main improvement here is not to the Firefox user interface or functionality but to the underlying Gecko rendering engine, responsible for proper presentation of web documents in Firefox, Thunderbird, NVU, Sunbird, Netscape, Flock and a number of other Gecko based products.
