I downloaded Firefox 2.0 earlier today but I guess I wasn’t supposed to. I’ll know better next time. The official release is tomorrow.

A few nice things I’ve noticed so far: 1) spellcheck in textareas (incidentally, but “spellcheck” and “textareas” are marked as misspelled) and 2) integrated feed subscription in the address bar (the orange feed icon is visible when you’re on a page with links to feeds, just click it subscribe), making the bookmarklets I mentioned in a previous post unnecessary. I’m sure some of the other new stuff will be be interesting to try out, like JavaScript 1.7 (what about other browsers?) and client-side persistent storage.
