Is Mozilla still working on Firefox 2?!?
« on: March 06, 2009, 01:06:13 AM »
The last update to Firefox 2 was 2.0.0.20.  Now FF 2 is no longer in development.  However, if you look throught the mozill.org ftp site, it looks like they are still working on it.

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla1.8/

It lists "firefox-2.0.0.22pre.en-US.win32.installer.exe", a 2.0.0.22 beta version?

I would assume the 1.8 engine is still in development. Its used in other applications like Camino and Seamonkey that may have not updated to the 1.9 engine yet.

-= Hmm.. I guess they still work on it but with less priority because I heard that Mozilla is working on for Firefox 3 & Firefox 4 Alpha [Codename: Minefield]..
