Firefox 5 Review

Fernando Ortega
The newest update to a popular Internet browser
A review of Firefox 5 by Fernando Ortega

Strangely, Mozilla has introduced a new version of Firefox so soon after Firefox 4.0 was released considering how long the 3.x branch was going on. While the reasons why Mozilla Firefox has released version 5.0 so soon after the release of 4.0, we're going to take a guess that it had to do with the Do-Not-Track header, a privacy feature long awaited in a mainstream browser.

Also new in version 5.0 are CSS animations, increased HTTP idle performance, better JavaScript performance and improved standards of HTML5 and more. Firefox 5 also promises to be better in handling memory and network performance.

Additionally, there are several security issues which have been addressed in jumping so far ahead in versioning.

Firefox 5 is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from internet browsers without restrictions. Firefox 5 5.0.1 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
