Default Firefox 3.0b2 Beta released

Firefox 3.0b2 Beta 2 has been released and is available on the release ftp server. The official schedule for this release is in three days on December 21st. There is no news yet on what has been changed in this beta release of the upcoming Firefox 3 Gran Paradiso browser as the release notes are usually published when the website reflects the changes as well.
The release notes will be posted on the official Mozilla website when the announcement of the new version will be made public, just save the link to them and check them out once they are up.

Just tried it out. I've been using v.2. This is way faster than v.2 was. I'm surprised. I like it.

Only 10 out of 33 extensions are compatible. At least it is the major ones.

I don't really see why it's necessary to use the portable version. I installed the regular version without any trouble. It automatically had all of my v.2 settings and favorites. I haven't had any problems at all out of this beta. It's never hung or crashed yet. It's way faster at displaying websites than v.2 was.

It is definitely faster, but I live by my extensions. It's nice to see it up and running, but I will wait for the official release... maybe by then my extensions will be up to the task.

After using it a while, the only thing I don't like is how they implemented the bookmarks. There are times when it is easier for me to add a bookmark from the menu rather than the star at the end of the address bar. Then when I add it from the menu, I have to move my mouse clear to the upper right corner to tell it which folder to put it in. It was better when they just had that window pop up right under the bookmarks menu.
