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.

They moved it to the tab itself. It does take some getting used to, but I found it only took about a day or two before I was accustomed to the location on the tabs.

I believe they mostly did this per request by the majority of users who felt it should be on the tab. I will admit that it's easier to close a tab this way now - especially if it's not the currently visible tab.

As people will find - the location they had it before was that way for a reason. Having the close button on the tab makes it easier to accidentally close a tab instead of selecting it.

I'm guessing you can probably find a way to switch the behavior back if you need to - either using about:config, or an extension.
