Mozilla FireFox 10 now available
Mozilla Corporation today launched Firefox 10, just 6 weeks after the version 9 was launched, it is very interesting to see the rapid release cycle adapted by the Mozilla corporation to compete with its competitors like Opera and Google Chrome. In a span of just 9 months it has come from version 4 to version 10. A new version of Firefox now comes out every six weeks. FF10 is compatible with Windows, Macs, Linux machines and Android.
FireFox 10 comes with a lots of bug fixes, improved extension support, a forward button that hides itself when not needed, APIs for full-screen web apps and last but not the least multi-touch gesture support for the android users.
The earlier versions had some problems with the extension compatibility and hence it has been fixed in the Firefox 10. Firefox 10 will also allow add-ons to silently and automatically update themselves in the background.
This current version of Firefox i.e. Firefox 10 is notable for being the first Extended Support Release version, now if you are wondering what it is then it is a program made for the growing concerns of enterprise users and also IT professionals, that have laid concerns over the idea of rapid updates among the browsers. Now with the Extended Support Release version there would be only bug-fixes and security fixes. No drastic changes to the browser would be done and if it has to be done then it would happen only once in every 42 weeks.
