Mozilla releases Firefox 5 beta with improved performance and added developer support
After taking nearly three years to deliver Firefox 4, Mozilla has beta-released Firefox 5 just two months after. The first beta in Mozilla’s new rapid release development cycle, Firefox 5 beta does not feature as many interface and framework changes that Firefox 4 had over Firefox 3.
Trying to stay up-to-date and ahead of the curve, the new strategy will enable Mozilla to deliver frequent stable updates, and bring new features to users faster, like Google does with Chrome. Changes in Firefox 5 beta include:
- Added support for CSS animations
- Added support for switching Firefox development channels
- The Do-Not-Track header preference has been moved to increase discoverability
- Improved standards support for HTML5, XHR, MathML, SMIL, and canvas
- Improved spell checking for some locales
- Improved desktop environment integration for Linux users
By the time Firefox 5 rolls out - hopefully by June 21st, as Mozilla had announced - there will definitely be more end-user features and interface improvements in tow, with popular Mozilla Labs' tweaks finding their way to the full release.
