Mozilla Firefox 1.5 Released
Posted on 30-Nov-2005 18:02. | Tags Filed under: News.



One year after the debut of Firefox 1.0, and more than 100 million downloads later, Mozilla Corp. is releasing Firefox 1.5, the latest version of its open source Web browser, available now as a free download. The team says Firefox 1.5 delivers an improved browser with significant performance and usability upgrades, security and privacy enhancements, support for Web standards, and greater customization options.

"With dozens of enhancements, Firefox 1.5 will draw many new users to the improved Web experience it affords," said Mitchell Baker, CEO of Mozilla Corporation. "Firefox is proof of our passion for promoting choice and innovation on the Web and making the Internet accessible and productive. Firefox 1.5 is the easiest browser to install, use, customize, and keep up-to-date and secure."

Firefox 1.5 has been enhanced in several areas. User experience is improved, with a new "drag and drop" feature for tabbed browsing, an improved pop-up blocker, improved Live Bookmarks feature, and improved Options interface for easier to adjust browser settings.

A new automatic update system alerts users and prompts them to act when security and functionality updates become available, allowing users to have the most up-to-date browser at any time.

The browser promises improved performance with a new generation rendering and layout engine that speeds navigation between previously viewed Web pages through caching and more accurate display of complex Web pages.

The Mozilla developers have also added new capabilities contributed by IBM, that make it easier for the aged or mobility and sight-impaired to navigate the Web. The browser can now be used with technology that reads Web content aloud; allow users to navigate with keystrokes rather than mouseclicks; and reduce the tabbing required to navigate documents such as spreadsheets.

With Firefox 1.5, Mozilla continues its search partnership with Google in the Americas and in Europe and begins a new search relationship with Yahoo! in China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan.
