Firefox 3.6 released

Sunday, 24th January 2010 5:46am
Firefox 3.6 has now been released and promises to be faster and more responsive than the previous versions.

I downloaded this latest version and I can say that so far I am happy with and I can see some of the improvements on the pages that I use the most.

One of the easiest to spot features is Personas. I think I quite like how easy it is to change from one Persona to the next without any restarting the browser required. I think its good to add a bit of colour to the browser.

This new release also comes protection for out of date plugins and so if a plugin is out of date you get a warning. You no longer need to go to a special page to check whether plugins are current or not.

From a developer perspective its good to see Firefox supporting new CSS attributes. This version will now support attributes such as gradients, background sizing, and pointer events.

I also think that the support for new DOM and HTML5 specifications including the Drag & Drop API and the File API is great.

One more new feature is faster Javascript rendering and faster startup time.

There are also some other small niceties like when you click a link in a page, it opens the new tab next to the originating tab and not place it as the last tab.

Its good to see these improvements as Firefox continue to get better and better with every minor release.
