Firefox, Take 3

Firefox 2.0 is pretty cool -- not quite amazing, and I find some of the basics like navigating and creating bookmarks clunky. But I love that it can print perfectly without needing to click the printer-friendly option. (Ever try to print from Microsoft.com without using printer-friendly? It's a disaster, Fay!)

Maybe I'll be more bowled over by Firefox 3.0, which is now in alpha (just the fact that Mozilla doesn't invent new terms for alphas and betas is enough reason to use Firefox).

I'm still waiting to find out if they will actually build the file system to manage search and bookmarks they specifically promised me. Here is my blueprint for the perfect Web browser.

Tell me if I'm nuts or on to something at [email protected].
