Once we see some updates from IOS 5, now we switch to the browser engine. I am a fan of one of these browsers, and even now I use it. This browser is Mozilla’s Firefox. The latest information says, after going through the stages of research, Mozilla’s Firefox next version is already alive and kicking.
Available for testing in what Mozilla calls the Aurora channel for pre-beta versions, Firefox 6 gives both users and Web developers “more control over their browsing and development environments while improving overall performance,” according to a recent post on the Mozilla blog.
Though the final version of Firefox 6 isn’t due until August or so, this Aurora release can now be downloaded for Linux, Mac and Windows from the “Future of Firefox” page on the Mozilla Project’s Web site. Despite the appearance that seemed too fast, let’s see what progress has been made by Mozilla’s. Do not divert your attention, here are some features that can be found later:
1. More Control Over Permissions
Firefox 6’s new Data Management Window is a site-based permissions interface that lets users control how much access particular Web sites have to their browsing data, including cookies, passwords and location information. The feature is still an experimental one, but users can begin testing it out by typing “about:permissions” in Firefox’s Awesome Bar, as it calls the URL Bar. More information about the new feature can also be found on a blog post from Mozilla’s Sid Stamm, who works on privacy and security.
2. Faster Startup Times
“Power users” of Firefox’s Panorama feature can now load saved tab groups only while using Panorama thanks to Firefox 6’s Panorama Groups on Demand feature. The result is improved browser startup time and a better overall experience, Mozilla says.
3. Faster Performance on Linux
Speaking of speeds, Firefox 6 is also the first version in which the browser’s newly achieved performance boost for Linux users is expected to be felt, as I noted last month.
4. Better Plug-in Management
The new browser version quickly verifies the compatibility of installed plug-ins directly from the Add-Ons Manager thanks to a Plug-in Check feature.
5. HTML5 and More
Overall, this is the browser you want to facilitate all your online activity. Surfing becomes much easier, I myself can not wait for it to arrive.
