Is it me or are browser development cycles shortening?
Firefox 5 is already being prepared by Mozilla. At least the UI features have been laid out by the Mozilla team — there are nine new features in total.
- Tab multi-select
- New tab page (no public mockups yet)
- Add-ons will get standardized toolbar support
- File upload indicator.
- Home button will completely disappear. 0_o
- In-browser preview: Firefox will also get an integrated PDF viewer
- Taskbar web apps
- Identity management
- New sharing features: access to your social media accounts, ability to add social accounts and “share” websites directly from your URL bar. (death to the like button!)
