Firefox 3 RC1 Released

Firefox logo

The first release candidate version of Firefox 3 is now available from Mozilla.

If you're already using the beta of Firefox 3, which many people on the latest Linux distros will, it is unlikely there will be that many functionality changes and new features in this RC release, but it is designed to bring greater stability and move closer towards the final release of Firefox 3.0.

Having said that, this new RC does have some new features that don't make an appearance in the most recent beta.

Cited are some new user interface improvements, which improve the consistency with Firefox on each platform it is available from. There are also some updates to the location bar, among many backend changes.

The RC1 release is available to download, see the announcement for download links and more information.
