We're jumping the gun by a bit here....
Firefox 1.0 is still some distance away.
The link above is for the nightly build of an RC (testing) build of a beta build (0.10). And zero-point-ten is still not the same as one-point-zero. The mozilla roadmap shows 0.11 and 0.12 as well. So, even the v0.10 isn't out yet - The big one-oh is some way to go yet.
This is not a put-down for fans - just a heads-up, so that people won't take this build and then declare that v1.0 is not good. By all means test this build, but remember its not final.
This image is the best way to make it clear:
yesterday i downloaded PR (Pre Release) and i DON'T recommend it to any1. it still has a lot of bugs and for example, .exe and .zip files are taken as a streaming object (i don't know what firefox developers want to do with this), maybe it's a future feature of the download manager...
PR or RC are generally not recommended to anyone who wants to use a reliable browser. but it works fine for me, even faster than opera at times and i believe feature set gives a fine idea what to expect in the final version... what do u mean by streaming download of zips and exe. also the version I mentioned here was not released publically. it was a pre-release mentioned on the mozillazine and some developers blog! every version of firefox till now has been nothing but a technological preview
All the promotions it is getting will go long way promoting it to more users online who can help the cause by choosing this nifty software over Internet Explorer to make their experiences of surfing more secure and fun. You can be a part of the revolution! Get Firefox! and support the cause. The web can do with a better browser that promotes technologies which makes internet more secure and accessible. And Internet Explorer is inhibiting that development.
