Firefox 1.5 is out. Actually, it’s been out for a while, albeit in the form of 1.5 RC3, so you may already have it, but now it’s available to the unwashed masses.
Note that only the more popular localisations are currently available, so as yet there’s no British English version, but usually it’s a matter of days until limeyfied versions are released. You can, of course, install the US English version instead.
As for new features – if you’re upgrading from 1.0.x, consider the following highlights:
- Tabs that you can drag and re-order
- Re-designed options dialog
- Easier way of deleting your personal data
- Faster Back button
- More powerful extensions
- Better security
- Nicer error messages
- Better popup blocking
And, once you’ve installed this update, future updates will be much smaller as you will no longer have to download the whole browser all over again, just the bits that have changed. Mac users will also find that Firefox runs better, though at the expense of support for Mac OS X 10.1 (Puma). You’ll now need either OS X Jaguar, Panther or Tiger.
So what are you waiting for? Upgrade today!
