[MaxPC] Firefox 5: What we Know so Far

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Firefox 4 may be only a few weeks old, but Mozilla’s adoption of a Chrome style rapid release schedule has led to several leaks about upcoming Firefox 5 features, which believe it or not, should be released by the end of June. Users who want to gain access to the latest preview build can download a copy directly from Mozilla, or just scroll on down for a quick overview of what you can expect to see down the road.

1.) Multi Tab Select. This will allow you to close a small group of tabs, or move a select few off the tab bar to create a new window.

2.) A Brand New Tab Page Layout.

3.) Add-ons will get standardized toolbar support.

4.) File Upload Indicator.

5.) The removal of a home button, in favor of a home tab.

6.) Built in PDF Viewer / MP3 Playback decoder.

7.) Taskbar Web apps. This will allow developers to include a drop down menu from the browser tab to allow for easier site navigation.

8.) Integrated Identity Management for easy website sign in.

9.) Social Sharing from the URL bar to Facebook, Twitter, and possibly others such as Reddit, and Digg.

Some of these features might be amended or removed as the weeks move on, but given how soon they are expected to push out a final release, it’s very likely we are looking at a fairly complete list.

Apart from the built in PDF viewer (at long last!) the other features don't interest me in the slightest.

So how come they cant make java script run more efficient?
Is the Engine they are using at its limits?
I know that java isnt what most browsing is about but im still waiting to see when they will at least "close the gap"

2.) A Brand New Tab Page Layout. - still looks the same on osx

3.) Add-ons will get standardized toolbar support. - um ok

4.) File Upload Indicator. - cool

5.) The removal of a home button, in favor of a home tab. - still have a home button, what is a home tab?

6.) Built in PDF Viewer / MP3 Playback decoder. - about time

7.) Taskbar Web apps. This will allow developers to include a drop down menu from the browser tab to allow for easier site navigation. - not on osx. Is this added by some javascript on the page?

8.) Integrated Identity Management for easy website sign in. - um, doesn't it already have this?

9.) Social Sharing from the URL bar to Facebook, Twitter, and possibly others such as Reddit, and Digg. - how?
Don't really notice any difference yet.

I see in the future, Mozilla having a huge bundle of different releases listed on their site, that all do the same thing, with barely any extra features, being released every other month.

I don't really like this, why couldn't they try to implement some of these features in 4 at a later time?
