Might, however, be worth waiting as final versions usually appear quite quickly afterwards.

Thank you, but as you said, I'm waiting.

Thanks for that, I'm a sucker for trying new versions.
I have just installed and it seems OK, not a great difference to 1.5.06.
I will see how it goes.

Do your themes etc from version still work?

  rawprawn 12:23 01 Sep 2006

No most of them are gone, I think apart from the standard only Walnut & Whitehart remain. I never use te themes anyway.

beta two has the "X" on each tab for easier closing of tabs,

Saves a right click and then Close Tab...:-)

"Saves a right click and then Close Tab...:-)"

Or a middle button click :)

Stuartli, as to FF v2.0 appearing soon, the release date keeps slipping back unfortunately. It's looking like the end of October/early November at the moment.

As X™ implies, let others try out beta versions and iron out any snags, hopefully all extensions will, by then, also work with the new version

  Stuartli 08:44 02 Sep 2006

I don't have a "middle button", only a scroll wheel..:-)

Pressing it provides the auto up and down scrolling by moving the mouse.
