Mozilla’s Firefox browser has been updated to version 3.5, which should be the final version for Firefox 3. The latest update boasts of better (read: faster) overall performance, better security, and a host of new features.
There’s a ton of new features added onto this version, but probably the best thing about Firefox 3.5 is the smaller memory footprint that it takes up (seriously, if you notice your computer slowing down while browsing, open the task manager and check out how much memory the previous version takes up when you’ve been online for a while). A new memory management function called the XPCOM cycle collector has been added to continuously clean up unused memory, and memory leaks have been plugged to remedy this.
Other notable features include a private browsing feature that totally cleans up your tracks for privacy, and improvements to the Awesome Bar, anti-phishing and anti-malware protection, and the session restore and customization features.
