Firefox 0.9

Firefox 0.9 has been released today. Of course I immediately downloaded and installed it. As the version number shows, this is still a technology preview, so there still are some things not working quite as they should.

The most important missing feature is a good installation procedure. To upgrade from version 0.8 to 0.9, I had to remove the old version, install the new one and after that I had to reinstall all my extensions — Bookmarks synchronizer, Bloglines notifier, Links toolbar. All together 10 minutes work to upgrade a simple application.

But alas, this was the last time I had to go through this, since the next version will hopefully be 1.0 and will include the upgrade functionality.

One thought on “Firefox 0.9”

  1. …and there are just minor bugs. i’m really surprised, but, as someone already stated somewhere, microsoft longhorn will pack all the firefox features in its deafult browser 🙂
