Mozilla has officially released a new version of Mozilla Firefox for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android. After taking a lot of flak for their development cycle being too long, Mozilla has shifted to a rapid release development cycle similar to what Google does with its Chrome Browser. While some people feel that the changes in this version don’t warrant a full point release, Firefox 5 does include more than 1,000 improvements and performance enhancements. Firefox for Android includes the Do Not Track privacy feature in this release, making Firefox the first browser to support Do Not Track on multiple platforms. Mozilla created Do Not Track to give users more control over the way their browsing behavior is tracked and used on the Web. The feature, which lets users tell websites that they wish to opt-out of online behavioral tracking, is now easier to find in Firefox Preferences.
Firefox for Windows, Mac and Linux now supports the CSS Animations standard to enable developers to build more amazing Web applications and websites.
