Firefox 3.5 Released

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet


The busy bees over at Mozilla have released version 3.5 of Firefox unto the masses. Normally, this wouldn’t be too big of a deal, even for a fox follower like myself, but the developers are touting some pretty major features and improvements this time around. It warrants a look, so here’s a quick run-down.

Faster Browsing – Mozilla states that Firefox 3.5 runs almost twice as fast as 3.0. This is due to a new kind of JavaScript engine that processes incoming information more efficiently.

Private Browsing – Taking a token from Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 8, Firefox users are now able to surf the Internet with total anonymity. Nothing from your session is kept except downloads and saved bookmarks. Better late than never, I guess!

Tear off Tabs – Tab bar getting too cluttered, but you don’t want to re-browse to a site? Just grab a tab and rip it off! You’ll be given a whole new window to work with!

There’s also a host of other improvements to existing stuff like Session Restore, the Awesome Bar, Customization, History Clearing and anti phishing and malware protocols.

If you’re a Firefox user click Help>Check for Updates to get the new version!

For more info, go over to for a more detailed rundown.

Happy Browsing!
