The release candidate for Firefox 3.5 is already here and PC Magazine and  LifeHacker are reporting that Mozilla has announced it final publie release date to be 30th June 2009 . Yes !! that is today:)

following are few of the enhancements in it :

  • Now available in more than 70 languages
  • Improved tools for controlling your private data, including a Private Browsing Mode.
  • Better performance and stability with the new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine.
  • The ability to provide Location Aware Browsing using web standards for geolocation.
  • Support for native JSON, and web worker threads.
  • Improvements to the Gecko layout engine, including speculative parsing for faster content rendering.
  • Support for new web technologies such as: HTML5 <video> and <audio> elements, downloadable fonts and other new CSS properties, JavaScript query selectors, HTML5 offline data storage for applications, and SVG transforms.

so Enjoy … i just hope that most of my extensions remain compatible .. if not then i have to wait till they are :(… fingers crossed.
