IE 7 Vs. Firefox 2.0
It's the browser battle of the future: Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 vs. the Mozilla Foundation's Firefox 2.0.Its the browser battle of the future: Microsofts Internet Explorer 7 vs. the Mozilla Foundations Firefox 2.0. Right now, however, its more like a kindergarten scuffle in the sandbox, as IE 7 is still being beta tested and Firefox 2.0 is in its first alpha stage. The latest version of IE 7 Beta 2 boasts new tool bar elements, including a Page drop-down menu for saving and e-mailing a Web page, and RSS feed handling has been improved. With the refresh, eWEEK Labs could add most major search engines to our integrated search bar, and a new feature in this release let us restore our tabbed windows from a previous session.
As an alpha, Firefox 2.0 has even less to show in the way of changes. One of the most significant new features is a Places window for managing feeds, bookmarks and history.
