Final chance to debug Firefox
Release candidate three code for Firefox 2.0 out and volunteers required to develop version 3 and beyond
The Mozilla Foundation has made available the final release candidate of Firefox 2.0 before launch, but is already asking for developers to work on the browser's next incarnation.
Firefox 2.0 RC3 is available for download here and will be the last chance before the launch to iron out bugs before the expected release in the next month. Mozilla fans organising partiesfor the launch across the world.
"We could use some extra eyes on the Firefox 2.0 RC3 candidate build," said Marcia Knous in the Mozilla quality testing blog.
"As always, hammer on this build and do all the usual things you in your daily browsing."
She asked for particular concentration on using webmail accounts, (especially Gmail), checking your banking sites and watching videos and streaming audio and video.
"Our goal is to create a single index that lists what sorts of things we're thinking of doing, with links to more detailed ideas about implementation specifics or concerns, and targets for inclusion in the project," says the opening statement.
The wiki is intended to go over new ideas for Firefox 3.0 but also longer term projects that can be used in later versions of the browser.
Recent data from analysts suggests that Microsoft's Internet Explorer is losing market share to Firefox, although none put the open source browser at anything more than 20 per cent of the internet user base.
