Firefox 2.0 released

October 25th, 2006 4:01 am by TheHumanBot

Firefox 2.0 is available for download. Amit has a short review. Official release notes here. Detailed review posted two days earlier. Unlike IE7, I don’t have to restart my computer. I almost thank myself for having IE installed so that I could continue browsing while Firefox 2 was being installed. But it got over before I open a web page.

I am already making good use of the spell checker, new feature in this release. Wrongly spelled words detected will be underlined in red.

    The only problem i had was FF telling me “GBookmarks is not compatible with this version of FF” … Drats!!
    Loved the inline spell check and the Find bar finally having a previous button.
    The glassy interface really rocks! Firefox Forever!!

    One difference I’ve noticed is in the way you close the tabs. I don’t see the spell check though

    Oops, just ignore the link. You need to right click on an input field (like this form) and select “spell check this field”

    I always remove the “search bar”. I use Google toolbar instead

    I never install any extra toolbar. I don’t like a crowded colony at the top of my browser.com

    Can someone tell me what the heck is the “PIN no” that needs to be provided for the Google Browser Sync add on?
    Its my fav add-on. Just wondering if some of you know it.

    I hardly use bookmark itself. I just use a clean default install with sometimes extension I really need. No need to sync. I hate it when it gets heavy

    Configuring your computers

    After successfully downloading and installing the extension, then restarting your browser, you’ll see a setup wizard. (Please note that you’ll need a Google Account to complete the setup process; if you don’t already have a Google Account, you can create one now.) The setup wizard will take you through a series of quick and easy steps. You’ll need to choose which browser components you’d like to keep synchronized with your other computers (the standard install includes all possible components), and choose a PIN to protect your sensitive information.

    Configuring your second computer is even easier. You only need to install the extension, log in with your Google Account username and password, and provide your PIN.

    Just click on Spell check this field, if it is checked (tick-marked)
