It's the newest, fastest, safest, and the damn coolest Firefox yet and it's now available in more than 70 languages and of course it's still available for Mac, Windows, and Linux.
If you haven't received an auto-update notice yet from Firefox, go to the Help menu and click on Check for Updates, or, go and grab Firefox 3.5 now at mozzila.com www.mozilla.com/en-US/.
There's some amazing new features (I'll just highlight a few) such as support for open audio and video. Firefox 3.5 now has a built in media player that will play open audio and video formats.
The new Private Browsing mode allows you to wipe out all traces of your browsing activity at once, or selectively delete just specific data for the past hour, day, and so.
"Firefox 3.5 is more than twice as fast as Firefox 3, and ten times as fast as Firefox 2" !!!
Also what us artists and designers can be really psyched about is all of the new support for some cool CSS goodies such as,
Downloadable fonts support
"The new @font-face rule lets web pages provide downloadable fonts, so that sites can be rendered exactly as the page author expects"
In other words, you can provide and specify whatever font that you'd like to be displayed on your web pages. Awesome ain't it?
Also as equally as awesome is support for the CSS text-shadow property.
"allows web content to specify shadow effects to apply to text and text decorations, is now supported."
Support for CSS transforms.
"These transformations include rotation, skewing, scaling, and translation."
As if all of this wasn't enough, Firefox now has a kick ass newly updated logo.
You can get it here along with the Mozilla Firefox wordmark in various styles and sizes, but PLEASE, be sure to follow Mozilla's trademark usage guidelines.
Please give this article a favorable vote and share it and point to it in your journals. Not for me of course, but for others to be aware that a new and better Firefox is available. It's a great way to give back to Mozilla for all that you get out of Firefox for free.
