    "Today, the Mozilla organization is preparing to release the first release candidate
     for version 2 of their popular Firefox web browser. Firefox 2 RC1 is available in
     binary form for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X (the latter a Universal Binary for
     both PPC and Intel systems). The Windows download comes in at 5.7 MB and
     runs on Windows 98, ME, NT 4, 2000, or XP (recommended). It ran without
     issue on my copy of Windows Vista RC1."

    Only if this is a "new UI":

    I love Firefox, but the visual refresh stinks IMO. What brainiac came up with the idea of using dull, faded icons for the sake of a cheap hover effect?

    i was refering to radiant core's stuff (as posted before:)

    "Slated for release in October, Firefox 2.0 will focus on four priority areas, according to Mozilla. These include search bar, icon polish, tab strip and buttons in textboxes. To date, Mozilla has already released a beta version of Firefox 2.0, which does not include Radiant Core’s theme changes, and is scheduled to release another beta in early September. That version will include some of Radiant Core’s changes, according to Goldman."

    The way I understand it, Beta 2 was the first FF2 beta to include Radiant Core's changes.  That's what you're seeing above.

    ..but the article above says - that beta2 did not contain radiant cores changes - so if those icons (faded) above were in beta 2 and nowe they are in RC1 - then we still have not seen the new UI

    correct?

    *im betting they are waiting for Vista to get closer to launch before reveling the real eye candy

    (haha another with-holding eye candy conspiracy!)

    If you'd like a sneak peek, Mike Beltzner has posted an overview of our work to date on the Mozilla wiki, or you can wait for the Firefox 2 Beta 2 release (see the schedule).

    Jamie...  no one's withholding any eye candy.  Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's not final.  Tongue Out

    so that's all they could come up with?

    man - how come Flock seems to make a better UI than FF - even with radiants help.
