Mozilla has released yet another version of its open-source web browser Firefox as part of its rapid-release program in which the browser is being updated frequently to bring new features for end-users and developers more quickly.
The latest version to date, Firefox 10, has at least 4 new features – one of which would really interest most if not all end-users. By default, “most add-ons are now compatible with new versions of Firefox” which means users won’t hold themselves off anymore from upgrading to any available latest version of Firefox until they’re certain the extensions they are using are 100% compatible with such new version.
I updated my Firefox browser in Windows from v9.0 and noticed that some of my add-ons aren’t compatible with v10.0 just yet, thus I believe the default add-ons compatibility is true once Mozilla set loose Firefox 11 and so on.
Other new features of Firefox 10 include:
- The forward button is now hidden until you navigate back
- Anti-Aliasing for WebGL is now implemented
- CSS3 3D-Transforms are now supported
Other enhancements involve those for HTML5 like the full screen API feature that basically allows web developers to build games, interactive videos, and other apps that run on full screen. Developers would also love to see the Inspect tool brought to Firefox 10 with style sheet inspector feature that works similar to the popular Firebug extension.
