firefox russia FireFox 3.5 releasedDon’t ask me why this didn’t get more headline space – Mozilla has recently released the final v3.5 edition of its FireFox browser. This puts an end to a somewhat difficult development period – the new version is said to bring the following improvements:

* Available in more than 70 languages.
* Support for the HTML5 video and audio 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, canvas text, ICC profiles, and SVG transforms.

I have been using beta releases of FireFox 3.5 for quite some time, and have to admit that I am extremely happy with it due to the insane speed increases seen on the latest version – if anyone of you uses FireFox on a non-Windows-9x machine, definitely get the update installed ASAP!
