Firefox Beta 3 has been released some days ago, I have installed it and made a little comparison with Firefox 2.0 to see some of the changes.
When you zoom with firefox 2 you can only zoom the text and not the images, but now with Firefox 3 the images are also zoomed, so you can zoom a page with text and images, or only images pages.

One of the biggest changes on Firefox 3 is the way it manage bookmarks, and its interface also changed.

Check out that now tags is possible, what I have tried was to import my delicious directly to Firefox and the tags were not imported as I have thought it could have been, maybe a mistake considering how many people is using delicious out there.
By the way, and talking about delicious there is not yet a plugin for it by the time this post is being written, there is one for stumbleupon just released yesterday.

Places – New to Firefox, it helps you navigate in your “favorite” pages, the most visited, the most used tags, the recently visited, etc.

The Add-ons dialog box has another option called Plugins, where you can manage the plugins installed on your Firefox browser. A good addition.

Page Info dialog box helps you easily find the rss links on a page to subscribe to it.

    The whole new bookmarking system is called Places. In fact, the folder “Places” on the personal bookmarks bar is just the name given to the “smart folders” functionality, that’s a part of Places. Great comparison. ;-)
