IE7 out before Firefox 2

Mozilla has released Firefox 2.0 Release Candidate 2 (RC2), but may be beat in the race to final by Microsoft, which said that Internet Explorer 7 would ship in October.

Firefox 2.0 RC2 went live late Friday, with the update pushed automatically to users of earlier editions of Firefox 2.0. However, at least one more release candidate will be issued by Mozilla. “There are a handful of security and stability bugs we’d like to see get in before the final FF2 release, thus we’ll be doing a third release candidate,” wrote Mike Schroepfer, Mozilla’s director of engineering, in an entry on the developer’s message forum.

But while Mozilla has not set a final release date for Firefox 2.0 – on this calendar, it was once pegged to late October, but was withdrawn weeks ago – rival Microsoft said that it will ship IE 7, the first significant upgrade to its browser since 2001, this month.

I have been using IE7 for months and have found it easy to use and fast. I find it better to use than Firefox1.5 but I haven’t tried FF2.0 yet.
