Firefox 3.5 Officially Available For Download

Windows/Mac/Linux: The final version of the Firefox is starting to show up on Mozilla’s web site, and some readers are reporting update notices. Here’s a few links you should check out before downloading that browser.

  • Top 10 Firefox 3.5 Features – Breaking down the Private Browsing Mode, TraceMonkey JavaScript engine, little interface features, and bigger changes to the increasingly popular open-source web browser.
  • Disable location-aware browsing and tab tearing – If those features sound more like privacy invasion and mouse-clenching hassle, respectively, they’re pretty easy to turn off.
  • Make your extensions work with (Firefox 3.5) – Originally written for the big (bigger?) Firefox 3.0 upgrade, but this little about:config tweak should keep those extensions not yet upgraded working with 3.5 as well, assuming you don’t mind potential bugs.
  • Weave synchronisation tool – Mozilla’s experimental synchronisation project only works with Firefox 3.5—but, wait, that’s out now! It’s worth checking out, especially if you’re running Firefox across multiple systems.

The link below lands on a page we know to point to Firefox 3.5 downloads for all systems. In the meantime, tell us where you’re grabbing Firefox 3.5, or why you’re holding off, in the comments.
