Mini Firefox 2.0 review

Easiest install ever. Done in 90 seconds. Honestly, I couldn’t tell you how long it took, but it felt short. I’m sitting there running FF2.0, thinking “that’s it? I’m done?!” No reboot. No long download. Okay, I did close my apps like recommended, but that’s it. My bookmarks all look the same. Firefox didn’t try to pester me to change my homepage. My plug in (Flashblock) is still there. Bears repeating: Easiest install ever.
First impressions: I can use RSS feeds in the browser tried it – works. I don’t know what to do with RSS feeds yet, but they work. Spell checker for writing blog posts works – underlines misspells and suggests corrections on right click, has add to dictionary. Nice.

New skin – the look is fine, one minor tweak they made the search bar on the right a bit bigger – maybe¬† there was a way to change that on 1, but it’s bigger now at any rate.
Firefox was easy. Now I need to figure out what to do with RSS.

    All sorts of things you can do with RSS but generally subscribing to a single RSS feed in FireFox isn’t all that exciting. Having a folder full of live book marks (rss feeds) that you can open in a pile of tabs all at once is a bit more interesting.

    To make things really interesting, use an external rss reader or an rss aggregator site like http://www.bloglines.com/
