I have now put together a portable version of the Beta 2 to make it a little easier to try. All you have to do is download the Firefox Portable file. Then you unzip the file and browse for the file FirefoxPortable.exe. Just execute that file and you will be running Firefox 2 Beta 2! The profile is kept with the FirefoxPortable folder so you don’t have to worry about messing up your other profile and the uninstallation process is simple…just delete the folder!
If you want to install Firefox 2 Beta 2 then the files are on their FTP. The release notes page is currently up but the download links that they have do not work. Here are the direct links for the downloads of the English versions:
I am a little disappointed about the look of the tabs for Beta 2 because they look much better in the latest nightly build. In Beta 2 you will see that the text on the background tabs is a little grayed out whereas the nightly build has nice dark text that is easy to read.
I have put together a portable verison of the latest nightly build as well. That way you can see how the tabs have already changed since Beta 2.
I have received a few emails regarding a tweak guide for Beta 2 since I put one together for Beta 1. There was only one thing that had changed and I put the update in that guide.
