eWeek Creates Firefox FUD

Yes, it looks like even the folks over at eWeek are trying to spread the fear, uncertainty and doubt about Firefox 2 RC2 with their latest article titled, “Firefox 2.0 RC2 Is a Step… Backwards?“. Now with a title like that, you would expect to hear they took out tabbed browsing, or the new styled RSS feeds. No, they moan about a couple of features I didn’t even know Firefox 2 had – over I never used.

Shame on Jim Rapoza and eWeek.com for trying to get more eyeballs with a Chicken Little headline.
