    Mozilla has released the second beta of Firefox 2.0 the next-gen version of its open source browser.

    Strictly aimed at developers only - it is not recommended for general download - the second beta fixes a number of bugs and is intended to garner further feedback. New features and changes include: a new theme that updates Firefox's interface, enhanced search engine management and improvements to tabbed browsing (including the ability to re-open recently closed tabs).

    Firefox beta 1 saw the light of day back in July.

    The beta also features an anti-phishing tool that is turned on by default. In the same vein as Microsoft's upcoming Internet Explorer 7, the technology checks URLs against a list of known phishing sites. Should a positive match be found, the user is informed and given the option to return to their homepage instead.
