Mozilla Firefox 5 beta emerges


June 21, 2011

Mozilla has released a test build of Firefox 5 into its beta channel.

The Firefox 5 beta isn’t a full overhaul and new release of the browser, however, just an update with a number of tweaks being made.

As well as a number of bugs and glitches being addressed, this version adds support for CSS animations and improved HTML5 standards, along with enhanced JavaScript and memory performance.

The “Do-Not-Track” header preference has also been shifted to make it easier for users to find, and this can be switched on to stop cookies tracking your browsing habits.

Desktop environment integration has been worked on for Linux users, and spell checking has also been improved for some regions.
