Mozilla Offers Alpha of Firefox 2.0

Mozilla late Tuesday began the push towards Firefox 2.0 with the release of Bon Echo Alpha 1, designed to give a preview of the company’s upcoming revision to its popular alternative web browser. One of the most notable new features of Firefox 2 will be its improved bookmark functionality, called Places.

Changes have also been made to tabbed browsing, support for SVG, and numerous bug fixes. While the release is not recommended for daily use, Mozilla is asking users to download, test, and provide feedback on the build. “The BonEcho Alpha 1 milestone is the first of many developer milestones on the path to Firefox 2,” Mike Schroepfer, vice president of engineering for Mozilla, said in a statement.
