Mozilla has released FireFox 2.0 beta 1, the latest iteration of its popular open-source Web browser. FireFox 2.0 beta 1 features built-in protection from phishing, and uses a "search history" feature to create suggestions in supported toolbar boxes. The update fixes as well as improves tabbed browsing, and offers "tab reverting" to recover lost tabs should users accidentally close them. FireFox features inline spell checking for text boxes, includes additional plug-ins, offers more add-ons, and includes new bookmark managers. FireFox 2.0 beta 1 supports JavaScript 1.7, as well as client-side session and persistent storage. FireFox developers have said there is much more in development due for release in the next beta and/or the final release of FireFox 2.0. FireFox 2.0 beta 1 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
