Modzilla Firefox

The latest Firefox beta jumps to version 6 and lands with improvements made to security, tablet appearance, memory management, and Android fixes. Download for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android, Firefox 6 beta comes with a laundry list of changes made to both desktop and mobile platforms.

Some of the changes were included in the developer's Aurora release of Firefox 6, such as the built-in verification tool for plug-ins like Adobe Flash, better memory management for the Panorama grouping feature, a Chrome-style Scratchpad for testing out JavaScript snippets, and a new window for fine-tuning Web site permissions.

Other changes are new. One minor tweak, called domain highlighting, will help you read the domain of the Web site you're on more easily. This is a small but important change that people can use to visually verify that they are at the correct URL--for online banking, for example--as opposed to a spoofed one that's likely to be malicious.

In the new Firefox for Android beta, version 6 debuts numerous changes that appear to function well with no crashing during light testing. Mozilla said in a blog post that these include faster start times; less memory usage; less pixelation on image scaling; form tweaks; IndexedDB support for storing offline data; and Touch Events for better Web page interaction. However, favicons still appeared to be pixelated, for the most part.

There's also a new animation that quickly shows you the hidden tab bar on the left and options menu on the right when you launch the browser for the first time. Again, it's a minor change that ought to nevertheless improve the browser's usability for first-timers. Mozilla said that the browser has received a new look for Android 2.3 Gingerbread, although it was difficult to discern just what had changed from the previous version.
