Excitement! Adventure! Really wild things! Firefox 3.5 is officially released today!
I’m quite excited about this new release – this is, quite frankly, a really big release for Firefox that includes a lot of really cool, neat things, including (but not limited to):
- Support for the HTML5 <video> and <audio> tags (including native support for Ogg Theora encoded video and Vorbis encoded audio) – this means Firefox 3.5 can display video and audio natively in the browser, without the need for plugins like Flash or Quicktime. (Sweet!)
- Private browsing mode
- Location-aware browsing (handy for searching for things “nearby”)
- Faster rendering of web pages (always nice)
- Web worker threads (use that fancy dual-core CPU to make your browsing experience faster than ever!)
- A whole bunch of new support for web technologies like downloadable fonts, CSS media queries, and a whole bunch more

If you haven’t started using Firefox yet, now’s a great time to switch! Firefox is fast, safe, easy-to-use, and totally customizable – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg, as there’s a whole bunch of other reasons to switch.
So what are you waiting for? Get Firefox 3.5 right now and be part of the future of the web!
