Mozilla was poised Wednesday to release the anxiously awaited beta test version of its Firefox 2.0 Web browser.

Mozilla said in a written statement Tuesday that some patience might be required due to last-minute tweaking; however, the tech media was abuzz with tidbits about the system that is a major competitor with Microsoft's ubiquitous Explorer.

Firefox 2.0 is said to have enhanced security features, Web-page recovery and spell check for various Web forms.
