Loving Firefox 2.0

FirefoxThey fixed a couple of things in Firefox 2.0 that irritated me in the old release - like filling in user IDs and passwords before a page completely loads instead of waiting for all the graphics to be found, things like that.

Spell check is now active in text entry screens.... a big help for someone like me who is a bit spelling challenged.

But the best thing is the Flashblock extension. Since the spammers advertising companies are losing the pop-up war, they are switching to Flash ads. Flashblock halts them - I can see things I want to see (YouTube, etc.) by clicking on the Flashblock logo. Wonderful. No more wasted time loading things I don't want to see, no more irritating ads, .... life is good.
