The new version of Firefox does not feature anything revolutionary in terms of the UI, but it does promise to greatly increase the speed and performance of the browser. Reports indicate that this version of Firefox could be as much as 20% faster than the older one. The new version will also dramatically increase the start up speed of the browser, especially for users who start with a lot of tabs and groups.
They have also added a new permissions tool that allows users to grant various things to certain websites such as password storage and and pop-ups. Once you have the new version simply type “about:permissions” to access the setting for the new feature.
Overall, looks like a great update, and if you don’t want to wait, it can be yours now!
UPDATE : Such is the fast pace of tech blogging that events can change very quickly before you know it. No sooner had we put this post out than Mozilla made Firefox 6 officially available!
