    Bon Ocho, the Firefox 2 code name is taken from a public park - Bon Echo Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada that translates to "good echo".

    Mozilla Firefox 2.0 will have the following new features / improvements:

    * Provide an easy access to History and Bookmarks, enhancments to Live Bookmarks
    * Tabbed browsing UI improvements - Aim is to decrease the learning curve for new users and make the whole tabs approach more intuitive.
    * Improve the process of adding new RSS feeds
    * Extension Manager enhancements - option to blacklist firefox extensions
    * Search Engine UI improvements - make adding search keywords more easy. Simplify adding or deleting search engines.

    There are plans for enhanced security, blacklisting and anti-phishing measures to be fitted to the new version. However, no details of what they might be have been released yet.

    While I always wait for the Beta , it is interesting that work has already started on Firefox 3 .

    " Although the first alpha release of the next version of the popular alternative browser will not be feature complete, it should give users an idea of where the company plans to take Firefox in 2006. The year is expected to be a busy one; work on Firefox 3 is already underway with a release possible late this year or early in 2007. "

    So I suppose you don't use any OS, since with every OS there has been people that had problems with it
    Im running FF 1.5 since Beta, and I never had any problems with it. If you don't count the 2 week wait until a fully working Web Developer was available, that is

    Thats probably because it is advised to completely uninstall any previous versions of Ff before upgrading to 1.5.
