Firefox 3.0b2 – Location Bar Autocomplete with Title & Address

Firefox released Firefox 3 Beta 2 for testing purpose. The most notable feature is that, the location bar autocomplete list now shows page titles and addresses in two different lines and colors. The autocomplete function looks for web addresses in history, visited and bookmarked page titles, tags and the web addresses. This new feature makes it easy for users to find what they are looking for by just entering part of a web address or a page title, and selecting from the options. Also, to make it simpler, the matching keyword is highlighted in the autocomplete list.

Check out what’s new in Firefox 3.0 Beta 1 at our earlier post.

BTW, this is test only release and still have bugs. The new Yahoo! Mail and the Windows Live Mail (web 2.0 interfaces) will not work with Firefox 3.0b2. Users must use the Classic Mail versions. This is still not completely compatible with Windows Vista. Non-administrator Vista users cannot launch Firefox if Vista Parental controls are enabled. Windows Media Player for Firefox plugin is not provided with Vista. So, try this beta release only if you really want to check it out.
