Firefox 3.5 Released – Groovy New Features

The wait is over, Firefox 3.5 has finally been released and is available for immediate download.  I’ll soon be writing about some of the new features of Firefox 3.5 (Improved privacy and improved clearing of history, tab tearing, video support etc..).  Until then however, here’s the official list from the Mozilla Site:

 

From the download page, here’s the “What’s New”

What’s New in Firefox 3.5

Firefox 3.5  is based on the Gecko 1.9.1 rendering platform, which has been under development for the past year. Firefox 3.5 offers many changes over the previous version, supporting new web technologies, improving performance and ease of use. Some of the notable features are:

Personally I’m a bit disappointed they didn’t include the the Grouping of Tabs or Color similar to the IE8 Feature.  Oh well… I’m still disappointed IE8 still lacks the simple Spell Checker bundled with all modern browsers.

    Running it, loving it! I have to say, I love the TEAR feature. Use it all the time for testing.

    Hey, just a note about the grouping and color coding of tabs, I use an addon called Tab Mix Plus for that. Some very useful features :)

      @Ezzy,
      Is it free? What kind of extra features over what’s built into Outlook? Perhaps it’s worth a goovyArticle. ?

    Outlook? It’s an addon for FireFox. Actually it was Tab Kit that i had for the grouping and coloring of tabs, but tab mix plus does neat stuff too, and all free naturally.
