Firefox 3.6 Released
Thursday, January 21, 2010 - 5:58 PM EST
Posted by: Glenn

Mozilla today announced the release of Firefox 3.6, a significant update to their popular open source Web browser. This version of the software is built on Mozilla's Gecko 1.9.2 web rendering platform, which has been under development since early 2009 and contains many improvements for web developers, add-on developers, and users. The update also brings improved performance and support for a new type of theme called Personas that allows users to change the look of the browser without having to restart.

Other notable features and improvements include:

  Protection from out-of-date plugins to keep users safer as they browse.

  Open, native video can now be displayed full screen and supports poster frames.

  Improved JavaScript performance, overall browser responsiveness, and startup time.

  The ability for web developers to indicate that scripts should run asynchronously to speed up page load times.

  Continued support for downloadable web fonts using the new WOFF font format.

  Support for new CSS attributes such as gradients, background sizing, and pointer events.

  Support for new DOM and HTML5 specifications including the Drag & Drop API and the File API, which allow for more interactive web pages.

  Changes to how third-party software can integrate with Firefox in order to prevent crashes.

Firefox 3.6 weighs in at 18.6MB and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
