Mozilla Automates The Bug Checking Process In FirefoxIt looks like Mozilla is really trying to catch bugs early on by using Coverity to scan the source code for errors. Mozilla licensed the Coverity tool more than a year ago but they didn’t want to say anything until they were sure that it was doing a good job. I can only see this tool as being a good thing as long as it is used in addition to the normal bug testing.

Hopefully the use of Coverity will lead to a very stable Firefox 2 which is scheduled for release 6-weeks from today. I’m guessing we won’t see Firefox 2 in final form until early October with the recent push back of Beta 2. Beta 2 has now been delayed a total of 2 weeks and is planned for August 23.
