firefoxFinally Firefox has got out of its beta version to start its hopefully shorter Release Candidate process, before becoming a final release. As a matter of fact a couple of days ago Firefox RC1 was released just for developer testing. If you can not wait and you want to download it right away, you can do it by following this link here. As usually, no wonder if you find some bugs because this version is not intended for the final user, anyway if you find something wrong and you want to report it, you can do it by following this link. But what is new with this release? Here is a short list:

  • The skin has been changed to meet the look and feel of Windows Vista, Windows XP, Mac OS X and Linux. This particular change was made thanks to a lot of feedbacks coming from hundrends of users who reported how nice it was to have something which actually could blend with their operative systems.
  • A lot of fixes have been applied to this new Firefox version such as: the location bar autocomplete, bookmark backup and restore, full page zoom, and others, based on feedback from the community.
  • More fixes to improve security, web compatibility and stability.
  • Performance improvements. The Javascript engine has been revised as well as profile guided optimization. It has also been increased the speed of web applications like Google Mail and Zoho Office.
