Firefox 2.0 delayed by bug outbreak

The new version of open-source browser Firefox has been delayed for a month.


Version 2.0, codenamed Bon Echo, had been due on 26 September but will now make its debut on 24 October. The test schedule has also been adjusted, with the second beta now appearing a week late on 23 August.


The delay has been put down to a small hill of bugs that still have to be ironed out, totalling 87, according to the project’s latest bug list. The new version will have a raft of new features to keep up with those coming in rivals Opera and Internet Explorer 7, including anti-phishing security, a spell checker, integrated RSS news feed handling, and (once-again fashionable) tabbed browsing.
