    Not appeared through Bon Echo's update checker.

    Download universal version. (Linux and Windows setup)

    Just ran it for a short while, but it seems snappiy and nice... ;)

    Edit: Encountered first problem, the spell checker doesn't seem to work properly. That's enough to go back to Bon Echo 2.0a3 for, right there... :(

    Are you using any extensions? Do those work properly with the beta? Specifically adblock...

    Adblock Plus 0.7.0.2 I had installed for Bon Echo 2.0a3 still worked in Firefox 2.0b1. But the new 0.7.1 refused to be installed... which was not a problem now that I'm back in Bon Echo...

    I also have a hacked version of Sage working in Bon Echo that seemed to be working fine in FF2.

    I don't like Adblock Plus but getting to Beta 1 version 2.0 of Firefox is a good thing. I almost downloaded the Alpha 1 version of Firefox 3.0 last night.

    Beta 1 seems smooth and quick, but as they said on MacUser, it doesn't seem to be a 2.0 release.

    Adblock 0.5.3.043 seems to work just fine.
