Firefox 2.0 is here.

I’m running 1.5.0.7 and 2.0 side-by-side right now (although only one can actually be running at once) to see how I feel before I commit to upgrading. So far – an hour in – Firefox 2.0 feels very good. I like the subtle UI changes, the better organized preferences dialog and, most of all, the spell-checking on textarea form fields (although it doesn’t know the word ‘textarea’!).

I was disappointed that the Fusebox 5 reload extension is “not compatible” (strangely the Fusebox 4 reload extension is compatible – go figure!).
