Thanks for the info :)

Oh I have not tested it yet. Well I suppose it is not really easy to install / uninstall.

I use Firefox as my default browser... I've played around (a long time ago) with Opera. and use IE only when I'm forced into it.

Firefox 3.5

Post by Lakys » Wed Jul 08, 2009 8:02 am

It has been a while since Firefox 3.1 was in beta. Now finally we can benefit of the final version renamed 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:
  • Available in more than 70 languages. (Get your local version!)
  • Support for the HTML5 <video> and <audio> elements including native support for Ogg Theora encoded video and Vorbis encoded audio.
  • Improved tools for controlling your private data, including a Private Browsing Mode.
  • Better web application performance using the new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine.
  • The ability to share your location with websites using Location Aware Browsing.
  • Support for native JSON, and web worker threads.
  • Improvements to the Gecko layout engine, including speculative parsing for faster content rendering.
  • Support for new web technologies such as: downloadable fonts, CSS media queries, new transformations and properties, JavaScript query selectors, HTML5 local storage and offline application storage, <canvas> text, ICC profiles, and SVG transforms.

What’s New in Firefox 3.6
Firefox 3.6 is built on Mozilla's Gecko 1.9.2 web rendering platform, which has been under development since early 2009 and contains many improvements for web developers, add-on developers, and users. This version is also faster and more responsive than previous versions and has been optimized to run on small device operating systems such as Maemo.

Notable Firefox 3.6 features include:

Available in more than 70 languages - get your local version.
Support for a new type of theme called Personas, which allow users to change Firefox's appearance with a single click.
Protection from out-of-date plugins to keep users safer as they browse.
Open, native video can now be displayed full screen and supports poster frames.
Improved JavaScript performance, overall browser responsiveness, and startup time.
The ability for web developers to indicate that scripts should run asynchronously to speed up page load times.
Continued support for downloadable web fonts using the new WOFF font format.
Support for new CSS attributes such as gradients, background sizing, and pointer events.
Support for new DOM and HTML5 specifications including the Drag & Drop API and the File API, which allow for more interactive web pages.
Changes to how third-party software can integrate with Firefox in order to prevent crashes.
Developers can find out about all the changes and new features at the Mozilla Developer Center.

New revisions!

Thanks jammixx. Considering how fast things move, I am not completely sure it is still up to date.

Several new versions came out, Safari 5, Chrome 5, Opera...

Today, Opera is the fastest browser ever. I guess it is followed by Chrome, and probably Safari.
