    Improved Tabbed browsing
    We love tabs as much as you do, so Firefox 2 will open new web
    pages in tabs by default. Each of those tabs has its own close
    button, but don’t worry - if you accidentally close a tab, just go to
    the History menu to bring it back from the list of “Recently Closed
    Tabs.” You’ll never be crunched for space anymore, either. When
    you have too many tabs open to comfortably fit in a single window,
    scroll arrows will appear on either side, and a button on the right
    side will always show you an easy-to-read list of all your open tabs.

    Spell Checking
    Sometimes you’re in a rush, and can’t remember if it’s “i” before “e”
    or the other way around. Firefox 2 has built-in spell checking to
    keep you from making any mistakes in your blog posts and Web-
    based email, so you can worry about more important things.

    Search Suggestions
    Some of the search engines in Firefox 2 can read your mind, and
    actually suggest search terms for what you’re looking for. Just start
    typing into the Search bar, and a drop down list of suggestions will
    appear. (Works for Google, Yahoo! and

    Session Restore
    Losing your place while you’re doing things on the Web is a pain.
    Now, with Session Restore, if Firefox has to restart or closes when
    it comes back you’ll pick up exactly where you left off. The windows
    and tabs you were using, the text you typed into forms, and the in-
    progress downloads you had running will all be restored. You can
    even set Firefox 2 to always restore your previous session instead
    of loading a home page, so you’ll never lose your place again.

    Web Feeds (RSS)
    What do news headlines, indie rock podcasts, and pictures of
    kittens have in common? They’re all things that you can subscribe
    to with Web feeds. Firefox 2 gives you full control over Web feeds,
    showing you a preview and letting you choose how you want to
    subscribe. You can use a Firefox Live Bookmark, or a feed reader
    that you’ve installed on your computer, or through a Web service
    such as My Yahoo!, Bloglines or Google Reader.

    Live Titles
    Keep an eye on that auction or the status of a delivery using the
    new Live Titles feature in Firefox 2. Compact enough to fit as a
    bookmark label, Live Titles are regularly updated summaries of the
    most important information on a Web page. As the information on
    the page gets updated, so does your Live Title. Try one out in
    Firefox 2 by bookmarking

    Integrated Search
    Firefox helps you find whatever it is that you’re looking for. The
    Search bar comes pre-loaded with search engines for Google,
    Yahoo!, Amazon, eBay,, and Creative Commons.
    Wherever you are on the Web, you can enter a search term in the
    Search bar and receive immediate answers from the search engine
    you’ve chosen. You can select a new search engine from the Search
    bar menu at any time, and add search engines from hundreds of
    your favorite Web sites.

    Live Bookmarks
    Firefox Live Bookmarks let you view Web feeds such as news and
    blog headlines in the bookmarks toolbar or menu. With one glance,
    quickly review the latest headlines from your favorite sites and click
    to go directly to the articles that interest you.

    Pop-up Blocker
    Firefox keeps you in control of the Web pages you’re viewing,
    blocking annoying pop-ups. Firefox’s pop-up blocker notifies you
    when pop-ups are blocked via the information bar or icon on the
    lower right of the screen.

    Streamlined Interface
    The user interface in Firefox 2 has been updated to improve
    usability without altering the familiarity of the browsing experience.

    Firefox delivers a better browsing experience for everyone -
    including those who are visually impaired. Firefox includes support
    for DHTML accessibility. Web developers can create pages that
    reduce the amount of tabbing required to navigate a document to
    minimize keystrokes for those with mobility disabilities. Firefox also
    includes support for Microsoft Active Accessibility, Microsoft’s
    accessibility API standard for Windows. This support allows Firefox
    to work with screen readers such as GW Micro’s Window-Eyes and
    Freedom Scientific’s JAWS. Firefox 2 (Windows version) meets US
    federal government requirements that software be easily accessible
    to users with physical impairments.

    Phishing Protection
    Phishing Protection takes Firefox’s security to a new level, helping
    to safeguard your financial information and protect you from identity
    theft. When you encounter a Web site that is a suspected forgery
    (known as a “phishing” site) Firefox will warn you and offer to take
    you to a search page so you can find the real Web site you were
    looking for.

    Open Source, More Secure
    At the heart of Firefox is an open source development process
    driven by thousands of passionate, experienced developers and
    security experts spread all over the world. Our openness and active
    community of experts helps to ensure our products are more secure
    and updated quickly, while also enabling us to take advantage of
    the best third party security scanning and evaluation tools to
    further bolster overall security.

    Automated Update
    Firefox’s update system always checks to see if you’re running the
    latest version, and notifies you when a security update is available.
    These security updates are small (usually 200KB - 700KB), giving
    you only what you need and making the security update quick to
    download and install. The automated update system provides
    updates for Firefox on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux in over 40
    different languages.

    Protection from Spyware
    Firefox will not allow a Web site to download, install, or run
    programs on your computer without your explicit agreement. Period.
    You will be notified whenever downloading or installing software,
    and Firefox will always tell you what’s happening so that you can
    stay in control of your computer.

    Clear Private Data
    Firefox offers the ability to clear all your private Web browsing data
    with just one click with the “Clear Private Data” tool. You can be
    confident that when you clear your private data in Firefox it’s gone -
    whether you are using your own computer or one at the library.

    An Add-on for Everybody
    You can choose from over 1,000 add-ons at the Firefox Add-ons
    Web site. A Firefox add-on can help you comparison shop, share
    bookmarks with your friends, see the weather in a corner of your
    browser, write to your weblog, get news, listen to music - all from
    inside the browser you already love. You can even change the
    appearance of your browser - from buttons to colors and fonts - so
    that it matches your own personal style.

    Add-ons Manger for Extensions and Themes
    The new Add-ons Manager improves the user interface for managing
    extensions and themes, making it even easier for you to customize
    Firefox 2. Install, uninstall, enable and disable your add-ons in a
    single place.

    Search Engine Manager
    You can now quickly add, remove and re-order your search engines
    in the Search bar. Firefox 2 will also detect when a Web site has a
    search engine that can be installed, and will install it for you with a
    single click in the drop-down menu.
