If you have been waiting to download the final version of Mozilla’s latest version 6.0 of its Firefox browser – it is available for download from Mozilla’s FTP servers (and now also from its home page). I have already downloaded and installed it.
Firefox 6 is however expected to be released officially this coming Tuesday.
This version 6 of the popular browser has the following changes:
- The address bar highlights the domain of the website
- Introduces Permissions Manager
- It comes with a new Web Developer menu item
- Usability of the Web Console has undergone a change
- Firefox Sync improved
- The look of the site identity block has been streamlined
- Support for the latest WebSockets with a prefixed API has been added
- Includes support for EventSource / server-sent events
- Support for window.matchMedia added
- Firefox 6 will start faster when using Panorama
Mozilla has been releasing a major version every few months. To prevent losing market share and to keep up with its competitors, Mozilla introduced a fast release schedule.
