Mozilla & Gecko clones The Mozilla Foundation has released version 2.0 of their Firefox webbrowser to their ftp site. The release notes are not yet updated, so you'll have to do with the release notes for the third release candidate, which will probably not differ all that much from the final notes.

What's the problem?

Of course Mozilla doesn't want you to use your modified version of the browser and call it Firefox without them looking it over. Why would they?

Let's say some programmer modifies the FF source in such a way as to degrade performance. He/she then starts distributing that version as "Firefox" on his site, or to people they know. Kind of a conflict of interest, wouldn't you think?
