>Firefox 3.0 released – and other browser news

>

Today (June 18), Mozilla Firefox 3.0 has officially been released. YSlow (a web page performance analysis extension for Firefox, by Yahoo) has been updated to 0.9.5 beta 2, just in time to support Firefox 3.

Some other browser news:

  • Opera 9.5 has been released;
  • the Firefox 3.1 features have been defined, see the MozillaWiki and the article on MozillaLink; a first alpha release is target for mid July;
  • Microsoft announced that the 2nd beta of IE 8 is scheduled for August 2008;
  • Apple has provided an early build of Safari 4 on the Apple Developer Connection, apparently with their new JavaScript engine SquirrelFish integrated;
  • the GrApple theme (that makes Firefox look like a native Mac app) has been updated for Firefox 3.

>GrApple and Hyperwords

>Some more hints for Mac OS X users:

  • Use the GrApple Eos Pro theme in Firefox to make Firefox look like a decent OS X citizen.
  • And install Hyperwords for nifty inline hyper-referencing of (groups of) words; see the demo.

GrApple looks fantastic. The only thing I noticed is that the Tag button (part of the del.icio.us extension) looks quite vague. That’s probably because the icons are now a log smaller than they used to be. Otherwise it looks great.
