If you are a Firefox user (most likely), Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate 3 (RC3) is available for download free. What’s new with Firefox 3.5 RC3 anyway? Here’s some new features that might draw your interest. Of course, there are still bugs and errors in this new release but give it a little time and maybe Mozilla can sort things out for millions of FF users worldwide.
- This release candidate is now available in more than 70 languages – get your local version.
- Improved tools for controlling your private data, including a Private Browsing Mode.
- The ability to provide Location Aware Browsing using web standards for geolocation.
- Support for native JSON, and web worker threads.
- Improvements to the Gecko layout engine, including speculative parsing for faster content rendering.
On a personal note, it’s about time Mozilla increases the security level of Firefox via Firefox 3.5 (note: Firefox was voted Most Vulnerable Software of 2008). Another thing – the Private Browsing Mode is very similar to the InPrivate Browsing window feature of Internet Explorer 8 (IE8).
