Yo, yo gearheads. After like 3,000 release candidates, Firefox 3.5 is finally in da house! Today marks the public release of Mozilla’s updated browser which features significantly increased speed and privacy options, not to mention an awesome new private browsing mode for all you porn-iacs.
Check out a full list of improvements and updates, via Mozilla, after the jump.
Firefox 3.5 is based on the Gecko 1.9.1 rendering platform, which has been under development for the past year. Firefox 3.5 offers many changes over the previous version, supporting new web technologies, improving performance and ease of use. Some of the notable features are:
