Firefox 1.5 Released

  2005-11-30


Remember to drop by Mozilla.com and pick up Firefox 1.5. Here are some of my favorite points:

  • Better pop-up blocking.
  • Faster back & forward buttons. Much faster!
  • Moveable tabs! You can now drag & move your tabs (without having to install an extension).
  • Builtin SVG support. SVG images are vector based (think logos & maps). While not many sites use them now, its an exciting technology with many practical applications.

My gripes:

  • Fails Acid2 test.
  • Adobe’s SVG demos fail miserably.
  • Why is the X button to close tabs still on the far right instead of on each tab like Epiphany? Time to go looking for an extension or theme to fix this…
