Last week, Mozilla released their new version of Firefox, Firefox 3. In addition to a snazzy new look, Mozilla has added a great deal of new features to make the user’s internet browsing experience as comfortable as possible.
On the surface, you’ll notice some handy new tools, such as the “smart location bar” and “one-click bookmarking.” The new location bar is a very impressive addition in that it learns the more you use it, dubbing it the “Awesome Bar”. Over time, it adapts to your preferences and offers better fitting matches. It also includes an autocomplete function using your browsing history to try to match sites you have already visited. The new bookmarking tool allows users to click on a star icon at the end of the URL to bookmark a site. Again, this tool learns as you use it. The more you use your tags and bookmark names, the more the system will adapt to your preferences.
According to newsday.com, the new version of Firefox was downloaded more than 8 millions times in the first 24 hours it was available. Downloads came from over 200 countries including the US, Germany, Japan, Spain and Britain.
