Windows 7: Firefox 5.0 released

Firefox 5.0 released

Quote:
The official release date of Firefox 5 has been set to June 21, which is three days from today. If you do not want to wait until then to play around with the latest stable release of the popular web browser, you can go ahead and download the browser for your language and operating system from the official Mozilla ftp site. As with all releases that appear there, there is a slim chance of last minute bugs that could force Mozilla to pull the release and replace it with another one. If you want to be on the safe side, or want to upgrade or install Firefox 5 in a productive environment, it is better to wait until the official release announcement.

So what’s new in Firefox 5? The release notes list the following new features and changes:
  • Added support for CSS animations
  • The Do-Not-Track header preference has been moved to increase discoverability
  • Improved canvas, JavaScript, memory, and networking performance
  • Improved standards support for HTML5, XHR, MathML, SMIL, and canvas
  • Improved spell checking for some locales
  • Improved desktop environment integration for Linux users
  • WebGL content can no longer load cross-domain textures
  • Background tabs have setTimeout and setInterval clamped to 1000ms to improve performance
  • The Firefox development channel switcher introduced in previous Firefox Beta updates has been removed

I'll give it a shot.
I'll see if I like it better than 4.0.1.
Thanks

I need to know if plug-ins will work just fine with this Version? Before I install.

There are workarounds to allow for any addon. Firefox addon compatibility reporter solves it.

You can also change setting manually to ignore Firefox addon compatibility

I just go for the latest number and hope speed is the same and my plug-ins work.
So far, New Tab Homepage is incompatible.
Who builds a browser that doesn't allow you to open a new tab to the homepage, without a plug-in or modifying some code.
That's just dumb!!!
