Mozilla launches Firefox 5

It is almost exactly a month since Mozilla released the beta version of Firefox 5 and the final version is now available for download. This is exactly when we were expecting Firefox 5 in Mozilla’s “rapid development release cycle”.

 Mozilla said in its blog, “The latest version of Firefox includes more than 1,000 improvements and performance enhancements that make it easier to discover and use all of the innovative features in Firefox.”

The latest version of the popular web browser doesn’t bring any major differences in appearance,instead the improvements are mostly behind the scenes to improve performance, such as support for CSS animations and the inclusion of WebGL:  “This release adds support for more modern Web technologies that make it easier for developers to build amazing Firefox Add-ons, Web applications and websites.”

Firefox 5 replaces thus it’s predecessor  Firefox 4, which has had over 200 million downloads across Windows, Mac and Linux.
