Firefox 5 Released, Features Several Improvements, Available Now

Mozilla Firefox, which has been losing market share since December 2010, has just released a new version, Firefox 5, which promises speed and performance increases, as well as a few new features.

WebKit-based browsers (such as Safari or Google Chrome) have nearly surpassed FireFox, and as far as mobile browsers, they definitely rule the world. For those of you that still love and cherish FireFox, however, this update will serve as good news to you.

FireFox has increased it’s speed across the spectrum, has added improved “do-not-track” support, features support for CSS animations, and better standards support for HTLM5 and many other standards.

FireFox 5 has also introduced a few brand new features, including something they call the “Awesome Bar” (a quick-access navigation bar). It also sports an improved user interface, a new way to handle tabs, a built-in sync feature for your bookmarks, history, and passwords, and enhancements to it’s auto-complete feature.

FireFox is available now, and can be obtained by visiting Mozilla’s download page.

I, for one, will be sticking with Google Chrome for the moment (and possibly switch back to Safari when Lion is released), but if you’re excited and want to try FireFox 5, let us know what you think!

    1. Currently, I’m liking Chrome a bit more, but the updated version of Safari in OS X Lion does seem promising…
