The open source Mozilla Foundation has delayed the release of Firefox 2.0 Beta 2 by a week because of bugs yet to be ironed out in the browser software.
Firefox 2.0 Beta 2 was set to appear this week, but it will now make an appearance on 15 August.
The new browser will offer users improved security features and greater functionality. Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 was unveiled last month.
Despite the delay, Firefox 2.0 is still expected to appear on 26 September, its original release date.
Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X editions of Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 are available from the Mozilla website.
According to web analytics firms the Firefox browser has over 10% of the browser market, with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer on around 85%.
