Firefox 2 alpha 1

Recommended Posts

yeah alpha 1 is going to be extremely unstable... but they move pretty quick once it is out to fix bugs and get the next build out.. I remember when 1.5 was just starting.. there were huge memory leaks.. by RC1 everything was pretty stable and you could use it as a full time browser..
