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.

At least one person is now complaining that IE7 is slower than Firefox 2.

Interesting... that's the first I've even heard of it.

I wonder if Microsoft's attempts to bring the javascript compliance up-to-snuff has introduced some new bottlenecks?

He was complaining about the speed of ajax sites in IE7. Didn't it just get native XmlHttpRequest support? I think in IE6 it was done through an ActiveX control.
