    Default Browsers Are a Battleground Once Again

    Published: May 26, 2008The Web browser market is heating up again. That's because software is increasingly moving to the Internet. Soon, Mozilla will release a new version of Firefox. Not to be outdone, Microsoft will launch Internet Explorer 8.

    Next month, after three years of development and six months of public testing, Mozilla, the insurgent browser developer that rose from the ashes of Netscape, will release Firefox 3.0. It will feature a few tricks that could change the way people organize and find the sites they visit most frequently.

    Not to be outdone, Microsoft recently took the wraps off the first public test version of the latest edition of Internet Explorer, which is used by about 75 percent of all computer owners, according to Net Applications, a market share tracking firm. The finished version of Internet Explorer 8 could be released by the end of the year and is expected to have additional features.

    Firefox 3 ships with Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. Biggest obvious difference is when you click the down-arrow of the address bar to see the history. Entries give the name of the site visited and an icon. Takes up some real estate but its nice.

    People are saying that the bookmark section is good too.

    I've found FF3 RC1 faster than FF 2.0.0.14. I have played with IE8 Beta 1 but it's rather unstable and apparently doesn't like XP SP3.
