Firefox 2.0 only came out around two and a half months ago, but Mozilla developers are already hard at work on the next major release of the browser. The developers met yesterday to discuss the upcoming browser's functionality, and they've put together a list of planned features and enhancements that has been transcribed by the folks at Mozilla Links.
The list includes enhanced support for add-ons, remote bookmarks, the ability to open documents with a web service like Google Docs & Spreadsheets, better printing, and support for MSI installers to ease the browser's deployment in corporate environments. Also listed are some "desirable" and "nice to have" features that may or may not end up in the final release. Those include tab grouping, the ability to save pages as PDF documents, a private browsing mode, and a unified bookmarks/history repository. The complete list is available in this document, but the browser itself isn't expected until the third quarter of this year.
