Firefox 1.5 Offers Enhanced Navigation, Usability and RSS Discovery
“With dozens of enhancements, Firefox 1.5 will draw many new users to the improved Web experience it affords,” said Mitchell Baker, CEO of Mozilla Corporation. “Firefox is proof of our passion for promoting choice and innovation on the Web and making the Internet accessible and productive. Firefox 1.5 is the easiest browser to install, use, customize, and keep up-to-date and secure.”
The improved Back / Forward navigation on Firefox 1.5 uses a new memory feature (as opposed to loading cache), which makes Back and Forward performance much faster. Additionally, according to MozillaZine, going back or forward to a page cached in this way shows the page exactly how it was when you left it.
From a search perspective, Answers.com has been permantently added to the default search engines list in the Firefox browser and RSS discovery has been added. For more information on Firefox 1.5 or to download the new browser update, visit the Mozilla Firefox 1.5 Release Notes from Mozilla.com.
