Mozilla Firefox 1.5 official released - eComStation version available!

November 30, 2005 by admin

Mozilla's next generation browser is finally here! Mozilla Firefox 1.5
(official) has been released. And a HUGE thanks to Michael Kaply for
getting the OS/2 - eCS version out the door the same day!

Improvements over Firefox 1.0.x versions are extensive, including an
automated update system to streamline product upgrades, faster Back and
Forward navigation, a feature for clearing private browsing data,
drag-and-drop reordering of browser tabs, a redesigned Options/Preferences
window and better popup blocking. Web standards support is also improved,
with support for Scalable Vector Graphics, JavaScript 1.6 and more CSS.
Accessibility is also better (including new DHTML accessibility features),
security has also been enhanced. Firefox's Extension System has been
redesigned to make extension upgrades cleaner (nothing left behind from
previous versions).

You can download it here:

NOTE: This release requires the C runtime DLLs from Innotek. The latest
version is 0.5.1, which includes an installer. Available here:

http://download.innotek.de/gccos2/runtime/libc-0.5.1.exe

NOTE: This release requires IPLUGINW.DLL to use the Java and Flash
plugins. The latest (backward compatible) version is available here:
