We were told that Firefox 1.0 would have no new features over 0.9, just bug fixes. And then three new features come along.
Rather than go over them, I’ll hand you to Redemption in a Blog:
- RSS Feed Integration – shows an icon in the status bar when a feed is found and lets you add the feed as a bookmark, or ‘livemark’
- Better UI for blocked popups – shows an information bar, like in IE6 SP2
- New Find Toolbar – an easier-to-use version of Find as you Type. A postscript to that article is that the old behaviour can be re-enabled by a hidden preference
While feature creep at such a late stage isn’t usually a good thing, let’s hope that it doesn’t impact the quality of the finished product.
