According to ZDNet Mozilla is planning to kill Firefox2 support in mid-december. There seems to be a mixed reaction about this in the blogsphere. I am a bit concerned with the quick push to kill support for Firefox2.
Firefox3 has been in market for a little while now. I have had mixed experiences with it. While the memory usage is better, it does still crash after running all night. The awesome bar needs some improvements before I get used to it.
As a developer I think its too early for Mozilla to end Firefox2 support. A lot of internet users are still using Firefox2 and a vast majority of bugs still need to be fixed. Lets face it, not all the internet users are going to switch to Firefox3 within few months. Maybe Mozilla should keep on supporting Firefox2 for a bit longer until they get satisfactory number of people to jump onto the next version.
