Journal Journal: comparison of Firefox 3 beta 1 and Firefox 2

Firefox 3 beta 1 was released not that long ago and already there are features that are a vast imporvement since Firefox 2 was released. Firefox has always had the capacity to zoom text easily and this is extended in Firefox 3 to include images as well rather than requiring an extension to do so. The bookmark system has been overhauled to include extensive use of tags and notification of urls already in your bookmark list to avoid duplicate bookmarks. One feature that has been long coming is the addition of the plugins option to the add-ons manager which simplifies plugin management greatly in the new release. A great improvement all around for the to be released Firefox 3.

By varying the strength of the field the particles change color possibly leading to better displays.
