Default Firefox 2.0 Offically Released

Alright web surfers, the day you've been waiting for is here! Firefox 2.0 has been officially released!

#
Visual Refresh: Firefox 2's theme and user interface have been updated to improve usability without altering the familiarity of the browsing experience.
#

Built-in phishing protection: Phishing Protection warns users when they encounter suspected Web forgeries, and offers to return the user to their home page. Phishing Protection is turned on by default, and works by checking sites against either a local or online list of known phishing sites. This list is automatically downloaded and regularly updated when the Phishing Protection feature is enabled.
#

Enhanced search capabilities: Search term suggestions will now appear as users type in the integrated search box when using the Google, Yahoo! or Answers.com search engines. A new search engine manager makes it easier to add, remove and re-order search engines, and users will be alerted when Firefox encounters a website that offers new search engines that the user may wish to install.
#

Improved tabbed browsing: By default, Firefox will open links in new tabs instead of new windows, and each tab will now have a close tab button. Power users who open more tabs than can fit in a single window will see arrows on the left and right side of the tab strip that let them scroll back and forth between their tabs. The History menu will keep a list of recently closed tabs, and a shortcut lets users quickly re-open an accidentally closed tab.


Get it at Mozilla.com!

Wow Im impressed, FireFox is ALMOST equal to what Opera was a year and a half ago.

Thanks but no thanks, I'll keep Opera with it's 'old' tabbed browsing, user controlled search engine, fully customizable UI, Content blocking, WAND, IRC client, Mail Client, BitTorrent, RSS/Atom Reader .. etc etc and still under 5Mb.
