Firefox 2 Comes Out Tuesday

If you watch as many Firefox RSS feeds as I do, you probably noticed about three dozen of them starting out with this same headline. Firefox 2 is coming out tomorrow! Finally all the folks that might have been holding out on downloading a release candidate can sink their teeth into the latest and greatest Mozilla offering.

In a quick Security Bits video, I think the guys over at Cnet have it summed up the best. Internet Explorer 7 is better than IE 6, but doesn’t beat Firefox.

Firefox 2 T-Shirts and Party

Want to have your say in the planning of the Firefox 2006 Party? If so, go check out this thread over at spreadfirefox.com:

We’re still working hard to get the Party Tool up. We’re also putting together Firefox 2 Party Packs — a small kit including t-shirts, stickers, and other Firefox swag that we’ll make available to party-goers. (You all are planning to host or attend a Firefox 2 party, right?!)

Call in for Firefox 2 Launch

They have posted an interesting idea over at SpreadFirefox.com for the launch day of Firefox 2.

On the day of Mozilla’s Firefox 2 release, Firefox fans can
make calls to their local radio and TV stations. We can provide a few talking points and possibly host a conference call for the community to offer tips on how to work with the press. We can provide a list of the top 10 media markets, but no market is too small to hear about Firefox 2.

Why stop there? I say you start picking random numbers in the phone book and let them know about it. Just keep talking till they hang up on you and then try somebody else. :)

Firefox Facts – Free eBook and Web Site!

Ok, so maybe raving about the Web site being free isn’t the big selling point. Firefox Facts is my latest big side project to make it’s debut. What is it? It is both a Web site and an eBook. The majority of the thanks goes to Bob and Chris at Lockergnome.com for creating an eBook out of my ramblings. So what does each side of the project offer?

Firefox Facts (the eBook) gives you over a hundred different Firefox tips and tricks to get you going with the world’s favorite alternative browser. All of them are neatly organized in a PDF file for you to read where you want and when you want. What is the best thing about it? It is totally free!

FirefoxFacts.com is going to become the home for the quick tips, reviews and Firefox news. I’m no stranger to Firefox articles, as I have been writing them for Lockergnome’s Web Developers for some time now. This will become one more outlet to help you get your Firefox fix. Make sure you subscribe to the RSS feed as well.

Leave a comment about the Web site and the eBook and let me know what you want to see.
