Mozilla has finally come up with an estimated date for Firefox 2 Beta 1: July 6! The code freeze is supposed to occur on June 29 and by that point we should see the visual refresh implemented.
The latest meeting notes did not say anything about the visual refresh but the Firefox 2 Requirements page said that the visual refresh is slated for Beta 1. If the visual refresh makes its way into a nightly build before Beta 1 then I will be sure to let everyone know and I will post a portable version of that nightly build so that everyone can play with it. Well, let’s hope for an on-time Beta 1!
