Google optimized Gmail to make the download fast and appear in two columns, which is pretty cool. If you don't have an iPad, you can still experience this view in FF (and other browsers) by changing the user agent to simulate an iPad. This is of course just for fun, not good for any serious use.
If you want to open more than just one page at startup you can simply do that by adding several urls in the Preferences/ Main/ Home page field, each divided by a vertical bar, like this:

Firefox 2.0 was released almost at the same time as Internet Explorer 7. And, what a difference. While Firefox alongside Opera is raising the bar, IE7 is barely catching up with the rest of the crowd.
This is a good example of how much more efficient the open source community can be compared to a giant behemoth company like MS. The new Firefox packs a lot of cool new features and most importantly it is much faster than the previous version. Here are the new features in the order of importance for me.
When developing websites I need to make sure that the page I'm looking at is using the latest images and stylesheets. They tend to be loaded from the cache therefore so I may not see the recent changes. I found that by holding the Apple (Command) key and clicking the refresh button I can force Firefox to reload ALL the elements of the page therefore I can make sure I'm looking at the latest set of files. What is your experience?
I'm sure everyone is familiar with the Apple - "+" (Command - "+") and Apple - "-" keycombo to change font size in a browser window. But did you know that you can hold down the Apple key and use the scroll bar to increase font size as well? I'm not sure if it works with all mice, but it certainly works with the mighty one.
