    Hi FFGuru!

    You are probably on it already, but I just saw this interesting post over on the Mozilla Links Blog:

    The road to Firefox 3


    “Alpha 4, currently in code freeze mode, is due next week. Alpha 5 should be out by May’s end and will mark the return of Places, the long delayed integration of History and Bookmarks with powerful tagging and search capabilities. Initial support for identity management (CardSpace), enhancements to the extension manager and support for web content handlers is also expected.

    “Alpha 6, by the end of June should bring the download manager improvements (pause/resume between sessions) and more Places polishment. Beta 1 is due by the end of July with all UI (user interface) changes in place and Beta 2 some time in September including the first localized builds.”


    Interesting to see that Places may finally be let out of the gates pretty soon.
