    Someone posted this to our forums. I found no other links about the subject.
    Code:
    http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla1.8/firefox-2.0a1.en-US.win32.installer.exe

    its been announced on some news sites like digg but keep in mind its only an alpha and thus most anything wont work as intended.

    I copied that link and it auto downloaded Firefox 2.0 Alpha1.Don't think I will exe it though.FF 1.5.0.0 is fine.Will probably wait for 3.0.

    Hi, WSFuser

    Your right about that, Being Alpha is before Beta which is before RC's which are Before the Final. o_O

    Take Care,

    yea thats how it usually goes, but of course, not all developers may release public alphas/betas/RCs.

    Weird thing is that before I the downloaded the exe at the link and before I selected "save to disk" it was downloading automatically at some phenomanal speed at between 1 and 2 megs a sec when I have only 512 kbps connecion.

    As soon as I selected "save to disk" my speed dropped slowly to it's capped speed provided by my ISP.

    Tried this at different time intervals of the download with FF 15.0.0 and yep it was the same everytime on cancelling,deleting and restarting the download..

    Hmmnn,this is something worth looking into!
