Firefox 4 Beta 5

Just updated my Firefox 4.0 Beta 4 to 5 – it includes Direct2D Hardware Acceleration by default. If you don’t know what this is, it just means that the display in Firefox will be rendered by your video card, reducing the load from your CPU – so it should increase the performance.

Firefox 4 Beta 5 changelogs:

I’m still switching between Chrome and Firefox. I love Chrome because it’s faster to start and seems snappier to use. I love Firefox because of the extensions but so far I’ve proven that I can live without them.

The easiest way to update is to go to “About->Check for updates” on your Firefox 4 Beta.
