Pioneer Linux 3.0.2 has been released

,----[ Quote ]
| The Pioneer Explorer and Renegade offerings include the LinSpire CNR client 
| preinstalled.  
| [...]
| The current final release candidates all use KDE, which has a simpler 
| interface for Windows users to transition to Pioneer. It is expected that 
| Renegade will be released early next week with a Gnome interface to meet the 
| community demand for a different interface. No decisions have been made as of 
| yet to include the Gnome desktop as a Basic offering wrapped with support.    


Firefox, apply directly to the forehead.

| Firefox 3 beta 1 is totally, freaking, awesome.
| There are some bugs. The font work still needs some loving, and there are a 
| few instances where the memory gets out of control, but overall, for a 
| beta .... wow. Just wow. Alexander Sack (the Ubuntu Firefox maintainer) had 
| told me it was really shaping up. But I didn't believe him. I didn't want to  
| believe Ryan either. I haven't been this excited about Firefox since 1.0. 
| Seriously. I feel like an unbeaten step-child.    


Coming from a guy who is not a Firefox fan, to say the very least.


Firefox 3 Beta 1 is a winner

| According to Mozilla's blurb: "Firefox 3 Beta 1 is based on the new Gecko 1.9 
| Web rendering platform, which has been under development for the past 27 
| months and includes nearly 2 million lines of code changes, fixing more than 
| 11,000 issues." That means little to me. All I'm interested in is 
| performance, reliability, look and feel. And from what I've seen so far, 
| Firefox 3 Beta 1 succeeds spectacularly in all areas.     


Memory test - Firefox vs Firefox 3.0 b 1

| Does Firefox 3.0 beta 1 do a better job of handling memory than earlier 
| versions?  In a test put Firefox 3.0 beta up against Firefox in a 
| series of tests.  


Mozilla releases Firefox 3 beta 1

| A few months later than had been planned, Mozilla on Monday night released 
| the first beta version of an overhauled Firefox, the widely used open-source 
| Web browser.  


“Beautiful” tab switching for Firefox 3

,----[ Quote ]
| Performance-wise, CPU usage spiked from 2-3% to 45-50% during high speed tab 
| switching (that is, I kept Ctrl + Tab pressed for a while), but immediately 
| went back to previous cool 2-3% usage.  
| Firefox 3 Beta 1 is expected within the next couple of weeks.


Firefox 3: A look at its new security features

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla Firefox is one of the most popular Web browsers around today. But 
| what does the Mozilla team have in store for us along security lines? 


Update on the Firefox 3 Linux Theme

,----[ Quote ]
| Work on the new linux theme for Firefox 3 is progressing nicely due to a very 
| active group of contributers. To match the operating system’s theme, 
| Firefox’s navigation toolbar will use native GTK icons.   


Firefox 3 Beta Shows Promise

,----[ Quote ]
| The group that makes the Firefox browser Mozilla has released a preview of 
| the next Firefox 3 Web browser that aims to boosts security, speed, and ease 
| of use. The release is tad delayed than originally expected, but from the 
| early looks of the Firefox 3 beta 1 browser it was worth the wait
