Mozilla & Gecko clones "Recently, I have been pondering why is Firefox so darn popular? This is a question that I honestly ask myself sometimes, often while browsing the web from within the browser itself. The real trick is that there are so many different ways to answer this." More of the editorial here. Additionally, the first set of release candidates for Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 have been posted to the Mozilla FTP of nightly releases.

"I don't blame the Camino developers though; it seems absolutely stupid to me that Mozilla Foundation are wasting time with trying to get Firefox to work on MacOS X, when quite frankly, they would be better off improving Camino and simply dropping Firefox for MacOS X."

Now that is proberly the most sensible comment I read so far. It does seem stupid when firefox for the mac is poor and when they have a perfectly good up and coming browser. I think firefox is so multi-platform that they loose each platform individual uniqueness which im sure all of us and know that one thing we like to improve on our OSes. But its true the Mac OS X version was behind for ages. Im currenly tying this in safari and havent used it for a few weeks, but man its great to be on a great browser i forgot how brilliant it is. Now if only they can get rid of the brush metal look in 10.5...
