A couple of days ago, Mozilla releases its next version of Firefox, Firefox 3.5. Mozilla Firefox 3.5 has been in beta for a while and also in Release Candidates. If you have been using the Beta and/or RC versions, you may not see any difference much in the final one (which are more of bug & security fixes compared to the Betas/RCs).

  • Available in more than 70 languages.
  • Support for the HTML5 and elements including native support for Ogg Theora encoded video and Vorbis encoded audio.
  • Improved tools for controlling your private data, including a Private Browsing Mode.
  • Better web application performance using the new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine.
  • The ability to share your location with websites using Location Aware Browsing.
  • Support for native JSON, and web worker threads.
  • Improvements to the Gecko layout engine, including speculative parsing for faster content rendering.
  • Support for new web technologies such as: downloadable fonts, CSS media queries, new transformations and properties, JavaScript query selectors, HTML5 local storage and offline application storage, text, ICC profiles, and SVG transforms.
