Firefox 7 Available Now, Improves Memory Handling And Speed

Win/Mac/Linux: Firefox 7 surprised us in our latest round of browser speed tests, and this morning, Mozilla transitioned it from beta to official release. The new version’s biggest improvement is in memory handling, which the Mozilla team hopes finally puts some of the biggest complaints about the browser to rest.

Firefox 7 improves memory handling significantly, something we noticed in our tests and the folks at Mozilla Hacks pointed out as well — especially when compared to Firefox 6. Firefox 7 boasts a number of other small improvements as well: the http:// prefix is hidden in all places, bookmark and password changes sync near-instantly with Firefox Sync, and the usual round of bug and stability improvements were included.

Firefox 7 is available now to download for all platforms.
