Mozilla Firefox 2.0 Final has been launched on the FTP sites a day before it is officially due for release.
But as the Mozilla release people say, please wait for the official 2.0 download;
The Anti-release 
1. No, we have. Not. Released. Firefox. 2. Yet.
2. When people link to bits directly on a random FTP mirror, they’re doing a number of people harm including, quite possibly, themselves:
… So please… just remember: “Preed the Release Engineer says: friends don’t let friends download Firefox before it’s released.”
We know everyone’s excited for the 2.0 release. We are too. But give us 24 hours, so we can make sure that your first experience with Firefox 2.0 is befitting of everyone’s hard work on this major release.
I promise it’s worth the wait.
Oh well, having already obtained ‘Firefox Setup 2.0.exe’ and installed it, I’ll accept a slap on the wrist and move onto the evaluation.
Extensions in Firefox 2 are now known as add-ons, and quite a few of them need updates to run in Firefox 2.0. By the 25-Oct-2006 11:45AEST only ‘Bookmarks Synchronizer’ and “Copy Plain Text’ are not compatible with Firefox 2.0.
And having grabbed ‘IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu.exe’ last week, it is time for a heads-to-head evaluation, or ‘what did I just break?’ session.
It does seem that I have managed to break a few things 😉 I am currently back on a Firefox v184.108.40.206 using Portable Firefox. Firefox 2 is freezing to and extent that it is almost unusable for me. A bit of cleaning up and things are now back on track with FF2
Apart from that I have noticed PDF helper issues with both of the new browsers. I would expect to see an update from Adobe this week if other have this issue as well. (This seems to be intermittent)
Is it just me or are the IE7 Phishing Filter messages bl**dy annoying?

After a fair bit of playing with both browsers, I find that I prefer Firefox 2.0.
