    Who's using Firefox 2 RC1?

    I had tried the firefox 2 beta 1 a few months back, but I hate the default skin for firefox (I have used Noia Extreme since I started using it a year or two ago) and there were still alot of bugs...ect.

    I decided to try it out again, and found that Beta 2 had came out, and release candidate 1. Found the Noia Extreme homepage and discovered he did have an updated version for Firefox 2. Now im running this with no problems, and deffinatly notice a slight increase in performance as well as a bunch of new features im really liking.

    Just curious what everyone else is using at this point. Firefox 1.5, Firefox 2, Opera, or Internet Explorer 7.

    I personally tried IE7, performance finally comes a bit closer to Firefox's level and its good it has alot of the features as Firefox...but still no built in download manager, and the UI looks awful with my StyleXP theme. There are just to many little things that firefox has the at least this point in time, IE7 still lacks.

    Yep extensions are the biggest problem. Right now I just have Adblock on, and the filterset I have for it. Reveal and ForecastFox don't have support yet, but they will soon.

    I know Forecast fox, supports Firefox Beta 1, but not beta 2 or the RC1 (which is basically Beta 2).

    I can live without them though, as long as I have my Skin, im in alot better shape.

    Its still a bit buggy and yeah no extension support yet so I'm staying out of the RC's for a while, at least on Ff2.

    I just switched two of my rigs over to Opera officially after the latest verification of the terrible Firefox javascript vulnerability (even though I suspect that IE and Opera have a similar deep code vulnerabilities too that we just haven't found yet which are also unfixable).

    Re: Who's using Firefox 2 RC1?

    I used just now and seem good as it much clean - the final full version for Fx 2.0 due by end of October (hope it right date!)... and then next one Fx 3 due by Q1 2007 --- Fx2 seem ok but 2 of my extenstion dont support but Ive uninstalled and dont need it.. most of it are supported. it didnt make any mess, it look nice and easy - also I used NoScript into my extenstion also URL Fixer for easy quick when you type in address bar without typing www.

    Yes that what I think the 2 guys seem trying to con Firefox for money by making claiming 30 unpatched - I dont think there anything wrong with Firefox cos the guys still has no proof that didnt show us what 30 unpatched that were flaw on firefox -- it look like the 2 guys semm trying to "Blackmail" Firefox for money. dont you think??

    I have been using 2.0 since alpha no problems at all. Also if you want to make your extensions compatible use Nightly Tester Tools.

    Been running RC2 (on Linux) for a couple of days now - seems rock solid and fast.

    Love the inline spell checker

    Other than that, haven't really noticed any real differences from 1.5, other than the new toolbar button icons.
