Mozilla announce early alpha of Firefox 2, codenamed Bon Echo

Skip to comment form

Mozilla have released an alpha 1 of Firefox 2, codenamed ‘Bon Echo’.

Bon Echo Alpha 1 is a developer preview release of our next generation Firefox browser and it is being made available for testing purposes only . Bon Echo Alpha 1 is intended for web application developers and our testing community. Current users of Mozilla Firefox 1.x should not use Bon Echo Alpha 1.

I have not yet downloaded and tried for myself, but I would expect it to bust numerous current Firefox extentions and themes but, as the blurb above says, if you are a web application developer it’s good to get a look-in at an early stage. [Please feel free to report your experiences on this page, especially where it concerns improvements or otherwise to standards/CSS rendering.] And while you’re at it, if you haven’t already done so, you might want to check out IE7 beta preview 2.
