Just today, Firefox web-browser version 1.5 launched from the brand new Mozilla Corporation.
As always the browser is a delight to use and the new version includes numerous nice features apart from usability and interface cleanups here and there. Among the most noteworthy features is the new Clear Private Data feature, and the much improved software/extension update mechanism. Also, a long-standing link overflow bug has been fixed, which means (among other things) that Google Adsense ads will no longer be scrollable.
On the downside, most extensions need to be updated to work with the new version. Finally, to make Firefox menus work better on the default Windows XP “Luna” skin, Firefox developers changed the menu appearance. While it’s easy to switch it back to the old style, I’m more stumped at the fact that the Firefox interface is built using CSS stylesheets…
All things aside, Firefox 1.5 is currently the best browser available for the Windows platform.
