The Golden Age Of Browsers: New Firefox Released : All Tech ConsideredFirefox 3.5 catches up with rivals Chrome and Safari in speed tests, while extending its support for Web standards and offering a host of enhancements for users.
It seems that we've entered a golden age for the world of Web browsers. The latest evidence for this new era is the renewal of Firefox with the release of version 3.5. Mozilla has increased the browser's speed, added new features and included support for HTML 5 video. Early reviews suggest that it's a fitting riposte to the recent advances made by Google's Chrome browser, Apple's Safari, Opera 10 beta and, yes, even Internet Explorer 8.
In general, this is a great time for the Web. The browser market is becoming increasingly vibrant and enjoying real competition and progress as the growing demand for more powerful Web applications drives the adoption of emerging standards.
