i know one of the things added that people are looking forward to is the built-in spell checking.

Quote from: Carl Taylor, vnunet.com
The new browser includes phishing protection to prevent users being fooled by fake websites...

The only 100% safe method of phishing protection is yourself.  As what if the phishing protection doesnt say a site is a phishing site when it really is...Then you are just as bad off.  So I think it is up to the user still yet to check out each site.  It may help most of the time, but still I don't think I could trust it all of the time.

I tried the beta the other day, but fully half of my plugins weren't compatible yet. AdBlock was one of the incompatible ones. Since I can't browse without adblock, I am now using my trusted FF1.5 again.

I shall see what the second beta and the release candidates bring...
