Firefox 2.0 alpha 3 available today, including Google security features

The next version of Firefox will come out of the virtual box with Google's anti-phishing tools built in. While the Googlified security services have been available through use of the Google Toolbar for either Firefox or IE6 for quite some time already, this marks the first default installation. And we all know how much Google values the defaults.

The Google connection should come as no surprise. Not only does Google pimp the IE-alternative browser through its referral program and the Google Pack, but the company also has several lead Firefox developers on its payroll. The browser seems to serve as a handy thorn to twist in Microsoft's side, and supporting that program is one way to deny Redmond a few MSN-by-default users.
