Mozilla launches Firefox 5 adds Do Not Track to all versions

first_imgThe Mozilla Foundation promised that they would speed up Firefox releases after Firefox 4 shipped, and they weren’t kidding. Today they released Firefox 5, which includes the addition of the Do Not Track feature to all versions (including Firefox for Android,) support for CSS animations, and a number of security and stability fixes.Aside from this however, there aren’t very many notable features in the new version. Over at the Mozilla blog, the developers point out that this is just an indication that they’re shifting to a faster release cycle, and that not every full-digit release will have a host of groundbreaking features. In the same post however, they tout over 1,000 improvements and performance boosts in Firefox 5.The Do Not Track feature already exists in Firefox 4, but the new version makes it standard across all versions of Firefox, including Firefox for Android. It also moves the Do Not Track feature to a more prominent location so users can find it and toggle it quickly.The release notes, on the other hand, note the support for CSS animations and several performance enhancements for idle HTTP connections and the browser’s built-in JavaScript engine. The new version also enhances Firefox’s support for HTML5 and a number of other web standards, and addresses a security issue with WebGL.Read more at Firefox Release Notes via the Mozilla Bloglast_img read more
