+ - Firefox 3 Public Beta Due In Spring

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Firefox users, get ready to start messing around with a new public beta; it's due out in the spring.. InformationWeek says Version 3, code-named Gran Paradiso, will have "added features to include standardized support for running Web apps like mail and office suites when disconnected from the Internet. The new version will also offer Places, a revamped bookmarks and history manager that was bumped from the current version of Firefox, Version 2.



Mozilla expects to ship the final version of Firefox 3, codenamed Gran Paradiso, in the autumn, said Brendan Eich, chief technical officer for Mozilla.

Users of Web applications like Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Google Docs & Spreadsheets, or Google Apps Premier Edition will be able to download their data, disconnect from the Internet, and work offline, if the application publishers make a few simple changes to their code to comply with Firefox 3's APIs for running applications offline.
