New Mozilla Firefox in the works

Developers at the Mozilla Foundation are readying the first alpha version of the Firefox 2 open-source browser, and could release it as early as this week.

The release includes a new "Places" feature intended to make it easier to find and return to recently visited Web pages. The development team decided to freeze the code for what will become Firefox 2.0a1 as of last Thursday, with a view to releasing the code this Friday, according to the minutes of a Firefox 2 status meeting held March 14 at the foundation's headquarters. However, another notice posted to the Web page of the Mozilla Developer Centre advised that the Thursday code freeze could lead to a release as early as Tuesday this week.
