Open Updates: Firefox 3 and open office

So Firefox 3 RC 1 has been released and again, if you haven’t downloaded it I strongly encourage you to do so.

Having used the FF 3 Beta for months now I can honestly say it is everything it’s cracked up to be. Especially its coolest feature – the Awesome Bar (some boring people are still referring to it as the Smart Location Bar, but ignore them).You can read more about this feature, along with an interview of my man Beltzner who’s making some pretty bold claims about it, here. That said, I think Beltzner is right, the Awesome Bar has already changed how I surf the net and use my browser.

In other exciting Open Source news Microsoft has announced that Office 2007 SP2 will add support for Open Document Format. This is a real win for the Open Office crew.  It also means the day I switch to Open Office has been moved up dramatically.

Exciting times to be open…
