    Things are looking good for Mozilla's Firefox, which is the most popular competitor to Microsoft Internet Explorer. The latest version of the in-development Firefox 3 is Alpha 7, codenamed "Gran Paradiso". While it is still far from an official release, Firefox 3 already shows much promise, and boasts a long list of very powerful features. Highlights from the Alpha 7:
    • A new bookmarking interface, which adds the ability to tag your favorites.
    • Malware detection, with the help of Google
    • Detection of micro-formats.
    • Private Browsing mode, which allows users to surf the web with anonymity.
    • Support for running internet applications in off-line mode.
    Feel free to read the entire sneak peak at PC Mechanic.

    These new features sound pretty good.

    Above all tho, I hope they are also focusing on performance. New features don't do a damn bit of good if it slows your browser to a crawl.

    I especially like the malware detection, along with Kaspersky it will make internet malware unable to penetrate my computer!

    & that safe browsing mode looks excellent as well, I look forward to browsing porn and warez sites with anonymously.

    I haven't yet, I always wait till at least beta 2. By then features are finalized and there a fewer critical bugs.
