Firefox Logo Wow, Mozilla has placed Firefox 2 RC2 into the releases folder on the FTP and the Release Candidate download page says that they will be posting the links at 3PM PDT. It looks like they are trying to recover some lost time from previous delays by shipping this as soon as possible.

Like always the drop-down menu below will generate the exact same link that the Mozilla download page will consist of later today. This means that it uses the load balancing instead of linking directly to an FTP location.

I still believe that Mozilla will have a hard time hitting their October 24 expected release for Firefox 2 since they need to squeeze an RC3 someone in between now and then. They might be able to do it but RC3 would probably have to be released sometime in the next 10-days in order to give them enough time between the release candidate and final release to add some finishing touches. G-G-G-G-G-O-O Firefox! :)

  1. September 27th for RC1 then October 6th (9 days) for RC2. Still 18 days from that “deadline” plenty of time to get RC3 out and the live version if they follow the same pattern…

  2. Firefox 2 RC2 is definitely the most stable version released to date, so I think Mozilla has a really good chance of meeting their deadline.

  3. I have not had stability issues with any of the nightly builds for the past month or so. I had read somewhere (thinking Mozilla Links) last week, that today was the announced day for RC2 release.

  4. I am finally making the move to v2 with this release. Downloading it now.

  5. Code freeze for RC3 is Oct.10
