Mozilla today announced the release of Firefox 3.5, a significant update to their popular open source Web browser. Firefox 3.5 is based on the Gecko 1.9.1 rendering platform, which has been under development for the past year. It also offers many changes over the previous version, including support for new web technologies, improved performance and ease of use. Some of the notable features include:

  Improvements to the Gecko layout engine, including speculative parsing for faster content rendering.

  Added support for CSS 2.1 and CSS 3 properties.

  A new tab-switching shortcut that shows previews of the tab you're switching to.

  Improved control over the Smart Location Bar using special characters to restrict your search.

  Added a new Private Browsing Mode.

  Added functions to make it easy to clear recent history by time as well as remove all traces of a website.

  New support for web worker threads.

  The new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine is on by default for web content.

  Removed the new tab-switching behavior based on feedback from users.

  Support for new web technologies such as the video and audio elements, the W3C Geolocation API, JavaScript query selectors, CSS 2.1 and 3 properties, SVG transforms and offline applications.

  Now available in 70 languages.

Firefox 3.5 weighs in at 17.6MB and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
