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.

due to incessant crashes in Firefox especially when I had /. open in one tab. At one point, every time I opened my top 6 sites in separate tabs and went to /. It barfed. This was on XP onlt. the same version with the same tabs on Linux & OS/X never had a hiccup.
Then one day a few OS patches were installed (if only to get rid of that incessant "You have patches ready to install" bubble-up and somehow Firefox was stable once more.
Ironically, Firefox on Windows Server 2003 was always more stable than XP.

Thats my 0.02 ariary worth
