Today (Friday) Firefox announced availability of its next release – Firefox 3.6 Alpha 1. According to the lovely folks at Firefox, the release is for developers and testers only. But who cares? It’s fun to try new stuff.
This isn’t a major overhaul (like 3.5 from 3.0). It’s an incremental improvement. Google Chrome keeps updating their browser, so Firefox had to do something too (to look cool and hip and keep techno-nerds happy).
The actual release is due sometime in November (check out the Firefox 3.6 public roadmap). I’m just installing Windows 7, so I’m excited to hear it’ll support some cool new Windows 7 features, like Aero Peek, which allows you to see your desktop through open windows. Cool, huh?
I’m off to download Firefox 3.6. And no, I’m not a developer or a tester. I just like new stuff.
