I am pretty sure they are doing it for the cupcake that Microsoft sends them all the time. Mozilla has once again churned out a version update for its popular Internet browser with Firefox 9, bringing speed and features just in time for the festivities.
Yup, 30% faster right there.
The new version now also supports chunking XHR requests, which allows the browser to render content as it is downloaded, rather than wait for everything to done at once. This should help websites with AJAX.
Firefox for Mac has been updated as well, and now supports two-finger swipe gestures to navigate between websites. The UI has been enhanced as well, making browsing on multiple monitors easier.
Firefox for Android has seen an update too. The ‘Awesome Screen’ now integrates Firefox sync, making it easier for users to access their tabs, bookmarks, history and passwords across both the tablet and the desktop PCs. The update also adds support for HTML5 Form Validation API, which now automatically validates emails, URLs and other fields without having the developer to write custom code for it.
