No places for Firefox2

Filed under: Links — rakhesh @ 7:32 am

Wokeys, so it turns out that the much touted "Places" feature of Firefox2 won’t be there after all. Instead, it might get pushed to Firefox3. ("Places" is similar to Flock’s "Favourites"). §

Personally, I think that’s a trashy piece of news. One of the things I was looking forward to in Firefox2 was the Places feature. (Another thing I was looking forward to was the change in placement of the tab close buttons. Finally Firefox takes a more sensible approach!) So things are a bit sad that way. What’s there to look forward to in Firefox2 without Places? Ben Gooder tries to justify that (not to well IMHO). § 

Here’s the document that Ben refers to in the link above. The way I see it, its just a bunch of UI improvements or "catching-up" work done by the Firefox2. I mean — "Larger search box" — is that even a "reason" to make this Firefox2? Or what about "Tabs are "default" for new window open requests"? Except for a handful of interesting features, I don’t see why the rest should count in calling this release Firefox2 and not Firefox 1.6 or something! §
