Default Re: k, Firefox 2 on OSX is roxX0r

I'm quite happy with FF2 on my PowerBook. It's tons better than Safari with AJAX stuff like Google Calendar and Google Reader, but Safari still has a better overall feel with other sites. FF2 will probably bump Camino off as my secondary browser of choice, though.

Okay, just installed it and wow! FasterFox isn't compatible, but it doesn't need it. Very nice so far...and fast!

Anyone know if AdBlock works with it or if there is a new version of AdBlock that works with FF2?

Adblock Plus is a bit more feature rich and updated more frequently than regular Adblock. Paired with the Adblock Filterset.G extension and you're in ad-free-surfing nirvana.

Both extensions work perfectly with FF 2.0.

That aside though IMO firefox and thus the gecko engine are going to be the platform of the future.

Web 2.0 is where application development is headed, and at a pretty rappid pace. Firefox is currently doing the best to facilitate web 2.0 development as it is currently the most scalable and flexible web browser by a long shot.
I agree with you there. Linux, OSX, and Windows are all about delivering us a Gecko client that leverages a lot of AJAX and upcoming stuff out there to make it all consistent across different platforms. Ultimately, stuff is going to be more web driven, and our local environments of choice are just clients to get us the browser and webservice platform.

I actually agree with this %100, and I'd love it if it were.
