Firefox 1.5 Beta 2 Released

Firefox LogoFor those of you beta testing Mozilla Firefox 1.5, you will be pleased to find out that Beta 2 has been released today, and is ready for download. According to the Mozilla site, features include:

  • Enhanced web page rendering
  • Major security fixes
  • Improved automated update system
  • A few bug fixes

Way to go on the security and bug fixes, however, if it isn't passing the Acid2 test, I am not too terribly excited about the web page rendering, at least when it concerns CSS. There is no reason why Firefox cannot fully support CSS Level 2 properly. However, with that said, Safari and Konqueror are the only browsers that passes the Acid2 test. I guess making rendering engines for browsers standards compliant is a low priority.
