The fox moves on to a newer version.


Barely a month after the release of Firefox 6, the team behind Mozilla have published the 7th version of the browser. The competition from Google is certainly keeping them on their heels as Google is already on v14. The following is a partial change log:

• Vastly improved memory usage (up to 50% better) and increased speed
• Added a new rendering backend to speed up Canvas operations on Windows systems
• Bookmark and password changes now sync almost instantly when using Firefox Sync
• Added support for text-overflow: ellipsis
• Added support for the Web Timing specification
• Added an opt-in system for users to send performance data back to Mozilla to improve future versions of Firefox. This can be enabled by installing an add-on
• Fixed several stability issues

You can download it here for Windows, here for OS X and here for Linux.
