It’s been long enough that I’ve forgotten how fun it is to upgrade my browser. Sure, we’ve had the security updates, but there’ve really been no new features for almost a year.
Mozilla Firefox 1.5 Beta 1 changes all that with a slew of new bells and whistles, including a super-simple “Clear Private Data” dialog, better popup blocking, drag and drop re-orderable tabs, quicker back and forward navigation, and a shiny new automatic update system.
I’m mildly dissappointed that several of my extensions haven’t yet been updated:
HTML Validator (based on Tidy)
* Stop-or-Reload Button
All-in-all, though, this is a great release. I can’t wait until it comes out of beta.
