The Mozilla Foundation, a spin-off of former Internet heavyweight Netscape, has released what many believe will be the final version Firefox 2.0, the chief competitor to Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

The version, called RC3 -- short for Release Candidate 3 -- sports several user-friendly features, including a sleeker interface with buttons that glow when a user positions the mouse over them.

But far more important are the new version's security features.

"Within the browser, managing security, managing phishing, managing trust is a huge issue," said Gartner's Charles Abrams, a specialist in current and next-generation Web strategies.

Chief among the new version's improved security is antiphishing protection, which steers users away from malicious Web sites by checking them against a database of known phishing scams.

Firefox updates the database when a user goes online, much the same way that most antivirus applications regularly update their databases of known virus attacks.

Other features in the new version of Firefox include souped-up search tools that suggest search terms as users type, better tabbed browsing, and a revamped method of handling Web sites with JavaScript.

The new version also gives users a wider array of ways to read RSS feeds, which are growing in popularity as more companies turn to blogging as a way to build their brands and improve market share...

I just abandoned Firefox. It takes too long of a time to maximise or restore after it has been minimised a

long time. I'm in the process of getting Maxthon.
