Firefox 3 beta 5 released

April 2, 2008 – 12:53 PM

Mozilla has released yet another beta version of the next generation Firefox web browser. Firefox 3 beta 5 doesn’t have a ton of new features, but it fixes a lot of bugs and packs a bunch of under the hood tweaks that make the browser easier to use and more attractive.

Firefox 3 beta 5 features tighter integration with the Windows, Mac, and Linux operating system. That means you have native icons and interface widgets. The OS X version supports Growl notifications, and the Linux version uses the native GTK theme.

The Places organizer has been updated, making it easier to organize, search, tag, and browse through your bookmarks and browsing history.

And the JavaScript engine has been updated, meaning web applications like Gmail and Zoho Office run much faster in Firefox 3 beta 5 than in Firefox 2.

Keep in mind that this is still a beta, and you may experience problems. Extensions and add-ons that work in prior versions of Firefox might not be compatible with Firefox 3 beta 5.
