Firefox 3 is two to three times faster than its predecessor and offers more than 15,000 improvements, including the smart location bar, malware protection, and extensive under-the-hood work to improve the speed and performance of the browser, says Mozilla CEO John Lilly. Among the new features, he lists:
Â° The new Firefox 3 smart location bar "learns" as people use it, adapting to user preferences and offering better fitting matches over time.
Â° The Firefox 3 Library archives browsing history, bookmarks, and tags, where they can be searched and organized.
Â° One-click bookmarking and tagging make it easy to remember, search and organize web sites.
Â° The new full-page zoom displays any part of a web page, up close and readable.
Â° Firefox 3 is built on top of the new Gecko 1.9 and uses less memory while it's running.
Â° New malware and phishing protection helps protect from viruses, worms, trojans and spyware
to keep people safe on the web.
Â° Firefox 3's one-click site ID information allows users to verify that a site is what it claims to be.
Â° Firefox 3 lets users customize their browser with more than 5,000 add-ons. Firefox Add-ons
allow users to manage tasks like participating in online auctions, uploading digital photos, seeing the weather forecasts, and listening to music, all from the convenience of the browser. The new Add-ons Manager helps users to find and install add-ons directly from the browser.
