Firefox 2, code named Bon Echo, due to be available in October, will bring many interesting features:
* tabs will have close buttons
* the search box will resize when the windows resizes
* you’ll search Google using inline suggestions from the search box
* you’ll be able to temporarly disable an extension
* spell-checking for multiline text boxes (useful when you post comments on blogs)
* session restore (if Firefox crashes, it will ask if you would like to restore your previous session next time you load it)
* when you bookmark a site, you can select a microsummary. Microsummaries are small descriptions for web pages provided by third-party sites, for example instead of seeing “BBC – homepage – Home of the BBC on the Internet”, which is the title of bbc.co.uk, you could view the latest news “BBC – US releases 9/11 Pentagon video”.
* Safe Browsing will alert if you visit a site that uses phishing or spyware.
* Why Bon Echo? It’s the name of a public park located in Ontario, Canada and it means “good echo” – Firefox 2 tries to improve Firefox 1.
