Yes, FireFox 2.0 is just going from alpha to beta stage, but a build of FF 3.0 (aka MineField) is also online for download. It’s code-named MineField for a reason – don’t deploy this in your production environment.
That said, it’s running very stable on my box. No crashes and only a few minor rendering issues on selected sites. Gotta love tabbed browsing.
FireFox 3.0 will be based on Gecko 1.9 (whereas FF 2.x runs off the 1.8.1 engine).
Off topic : Office 2007 introduces a new default font : Calibri – I love it, renders very nicely onscreen in ClearType.
