The Mozilla Foundations Firefox 2.0 release candidate 1 adds a few new features and capabilities to the open-source browser. The most noticeable is a new default interface theme. Firefox 2.0 RC1 also changes the way that the browser handles large numbers of open tabbed windows and provides additional options when clicking on RSS feed links within the browser.
