Firefox 4 Beta 5 Available, comes with Faster Graphics and New Audio Capabilities

Seems like the progress of the Mozilla Team for Firefox 4 is a bit fast…
It’s just almost two months when they started with the first Beta, and just more than a week past since Beta 4 was released. Firefox 4 Beta 5 is now available for download. It’s said to bring super fast graphics and incredible new audio capabilities to the web.

The new Firefox 4 Beta leverages the built-in graphics hardware in Windows computers with DirectX 10 to improve graphics performance, and it also introduces a new audio API to expose the raw audio data embedded between <video> and <audio> elements in HTML5, making it easy for developers to use JavaScript to read and write audio data. The new Beta also comes with a new security protocol called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), allowing visited websites to insist that Firefox always use secured connections. You can learn more about the latest development in Firefox 4 Beta at Mozilla Blog.
