If you’re interested, here’s a handful of screenshots showing what’s new in Firefox 0.8. These are collected on one of the cluster machines at the university rather than my own machine since I haven’t yet had chance to download it.
- Main window
- About window
- New credits window (with scrolling text!)
- New downloads dialog
- New tab in the Options dialog
- New ‘Add Bookmark’ window
- FireFox Installer (Windows) I
- FireFox Installer (Windows) II
Update: I now have this running on my laptop, downloaded from Oregon State University’s FTP server. It’s going to take some getting used to the new name, but I really like the new logo and About window, and the browser feels much more complete now and less like a ‘technology preview’. The only other problem I have is that I need to re-install my extensions, since I used Mozilla Backup to do a partial reset of my profile, and naturally every Mozilla-related site is at a crawl today.
Update II: If you still can’t download it, try the UK mirror service which now has the file. I’ve also added the Firefox button to the home page.
