Firefox 3 Beta 2 in Ubuntu 7.10

Firefox 3.0 Beta 2 was released today across all platforms, Windows, Macintosh and Linux, in 25 different languages. Although not quite complete, it does have some impressive new features, such as a new Google Desktop style URL search bar, reduced resource hogging, better handling of passwords and download file types, but more importantly for Linux users, better GTK support.

GTK (or GTK+) is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces. It’s now famed for it’s use in the GNOME desktop environment, and is basically what makes your GNOME desktop look like it does.
