    Firefox 2 Beta

    Thanks for the notification. I've installed the new beta, and am already appreciating some of the new features, like

    the Google search suggestions,
    the in-line spell checking (which ironically has just underlined Google as I typed it in),
    the ability to re-open closed tabs,
    the restoring of the previous browsing session, and
    the close buttons on each tab.

    It'll be great when the anti-phishing feature is working fully.

    I am having crash problems with it, but I know that is part of the game of using a Beta.

    I just upgraded to this beta because i was becoming extremely annoyed after upgrading from 1.0 ro 1.5.Thankfully 2.0 seems much better so far it loads much faster for me and i havent had any problems with it displaying wepages incorrectly as i did with 1.5.Hope the future releases continue this route.I did have one crash of the beta but that was only when attempting to install a skin that was not compatible with 2.0. (they really need to start telling which versions those skins are for as many do not)

    It has been stable for me. Have you tried an un-install/re-install? You could have a registry issue causing the crashes.

    So far, I am very satisfied with the beta.
