Mozilla Firefox – faster, more secure, easier to use and sporting a new look, this latest Firefox release sets a new standard for web browser innovation. Mozilla Firefox project (formerly Firebird, which was formerly Phoenix) is a redesign of Mozilla's browser component, written using the XUL user interface language and designed to be cross-platform. It is small, fast and easy to use, and offers many advantages over other web browsers, such as the tabbed browsing and the ability to block pop-up windows.

Beta 2 wouldn't run for more than about 2 minutes for me before it froze. I'm going to try it out on a clean windows install when I get my new compy in a couple of weeks :)

What about Google-related extensions? Do they work with FF 1.5.0.5?

   yes, absoutely because this is just an update of the current version of firefox 1.5.0.4 it works great with this new version.

   It is Recommended to update your current firefox version.......

So you dont need to worry about it and note this is the Final Version .......
here after no update for Firefox 1.5.0.5 Directly the release of Firefox 2beta 3.
So i suggest you to download this or update your firefox....

Sankar Anand:

I use Opera as a primary browser, but I think, this is the good time, to try Firefox with some of Google's extensions.

To all:

What Google-related extensions do you use with Firefox?
Maybe we can combine a list? (Top ten extensions that are based on Google services)

With a small update like this most extensions will be fine.

I tried ver 2 beta 2 but I found it crashed too much like Caleb above.
