Although right now you couldn’t tell by doing an update check, Firefox 2.0 is ready and waiting for download, Secret Squirrel style.
At the moment, I’m playing the “OMG! My extensions don’t work any more” game, but its not too bad. All my vital ones are working (Super DragAndGo, ColorZilla, FireBug, Greasemonkey, MeasureIt and Web Developer are all good to go. Tab Mix Plus has a dev build that works quite nicely); it’s just the non-essentials that will have to play catch-up (I’m looking at you, Aardvark and CSSViewer).
Overall, I’m very pleased with the new Firefox so far. Many people have said that this release was not worth a point-five upgrade, but honestly, what does the version number matter. I wouldn’t care if it was called Firefox 1.63333333. It’s still heads and shoulders over IE7, purely on the extension functionality alone.
