Mozilla's Brand New Firefox 3.5 Is Worth Downloading

Mozilla has just released the final version of Firefox 3.5. The JavaScript performance — critical for many web apps — is massively improved thanks to the new TraceMonkey engine, making 3.5 feel very fast indeed. In addition to improved performance and standards compliance, Firefox 3.5 features new privacy controls, location-aware browsing, and the ability to play video and audio content without using plugins. A quick video tour of the updated version is available here. Firefox 3.5 is a free download for Windows, Mac and Linux from Mozilla.
