There’s a new version of my favorite web browser, Firefox, which is available for download. It’s now at version 0.9.1, which has these updates/fixes:
- New Default Theme
An updated Default Theme now presents a uniform appearance across all three platforms – a new crisp, clear look for Windows users. Finetuning for GNOME will follow in future releases.
- Comprehensive Data Migration
Switching to Firefox has never been easier now that Firefox imports data like Favorites, History, Settings, Cookies and Passwords from Internet Explorer. Firefox can also import from Mozilla 1.x, Netscape 4.x, 6.x and 7.x, and Opera. MacOS X and Linux migrators for browsers like Safari, OmniWeb, Konqueror etc. will arrive in future releases.
- Extension/Theme Manager
New Extension and Theme Managers provide a convenient way to manage and update your add-ons. SmartUpdate also notifies you of updates to Firefox.
- Smaller Download
Windows users will find Firefox is now only 4.7MB to download.
A new online help system is available.
- Lots of bug fixes and improvements
Copy Image, the ability to delete individual items from Autocomplete lists, SMB/SFTP support on GNOME via gnome-vfs, better Bookmarks, Search and many other refinements fine tune the browsing experience.
