Firefox 10 Released

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012 | Business | No Comments

FirefoxMozilla released Firefox 10 this morning.

Firefox has converted over to the Google Chrome release numbering, so browser versions aren’t as “major” anymore, but the new browser still brings some nice enhancements.

The biggest addition (especially for us web developers) is the addition of extra built-in developer tools (very similar to Chrome’s):

  • Inspect tool for CSS
  • Page Inspector (also like chrome, although it has a nice whole page highlight / dehighlight so you can see exactly what you are inspecting

Some other additions are:

  • Forward button hides until you go back
  • WebGL suppors anti-aliasing
  • CSS3 3D Transforms are present
  • Full Screen API (should be better for running web applications / kiosks)
  • General Bug Fixes

I think it’s worth checking out, as this version will also be part of the ESR program (Extended Support Release).  That means it won’t be updated for another 42 weeks, to allow businesses to use the browser long term.
