Firefox 4 Beta 2, WordPress 3.0.1 And Digg v4

Here are the three quick updates about three essential things relates to blogging and technology. 

Firefox 4 Beta 2
I guess you have already heard about Mozilla's release of the latest browser. After the buggy and highly unstable Beta 1 version, now they have Firefox 4 Beta 2. The most important change to this version is the inclusion of "App Tabs". This allows the user to change regular tabs into compact tabs which prevent accidental deletion of these tabs. 
Further, it organizes websites in stacked layers with cached content for further web browsing. But still, the Beta 2 is unstable in performance, thanks to the "beta" tag added to it.

WordPess 3.0.1
Now here's something for bloggers, I mean, those who do not use Blogger or Jhoomla or TypePad. After about 11 million downloads of the WordPress 3.0 in just 42 days, we finally have the next update version, WordPress 3.0.1 . It claims to fix 53 bugs o the previous version. Well, I haven't updated yet...I am waiting for feedbacks from other users. But I guess this will be a smooth update because it's just a minor one. have you updated? Please leave your feedbacks.

Digg v4
The new Digg has been there for quite some time now in the beta stage. Only a very few people were allowed to access the new version (and I was one of them). The interface looked excellent, and in short, it is much more social (don't forget that Digg is a social bookmarking site). But since it is in beta, the New Digg doesn't have the Digg Bar yet, and links do not open in a new tab. So digging is a bit frustrating at the moment. 
Anyway, the good news is that they are allowing the present members to sent invites to their friends ( at the most 5 invites).  So if you want to be a part of the New Digg, you can ask for an invite here. If you do, then also provide a link to your old Digg's profile because I will review your activity on Digg first before sending the invite. 

Till then, update and stay safe from hackers.
