Mozilla Firefox 3.5

Mozilla Firefox, one of the most popularly used web browsers by many people all over the world. There are already some positively toned news regarding the firefox browser. Mozilla's attempt to "upgrade the Web," resulted in firefox 3.5 and it was released last week for Windows, Windows Portable, Mac, and Linux. Some of its key improvements are a new a new JavaScript engine for faster Web applications such as Google Docs. These features excited users, though they came as little surprise. The release followed a testing process that involved four beta builds, three release candidates, and a version number change.

Even though Mozilla's browser broke Microsoft's lock on the market, Internet Explorer's market share is down a dramatic 8 percentage points to 65.5 percent in about the last year--Firefox is no longer the only scrappy, alternative browser in town. Other serious contenders now include Apple's Safari, Google's Chrome, and Opera. Mozilla firefox is still a good contender but it has a long way to go by making interface changes and so on.
