Firefox 3.5 Final Is Here, Download Now

UPDATE: Firefox 3.5 Final has been officially announced and is available for download directly from Mozilla (here or here)

The Mozilla Foundation confirmed earlier this month the fact that Firefox 3.5 Final will be rolled out on the 30th of June. Today is June 30th and it is with great joy that we announce that the final and stable version of the Firefox 3.5 browser is currently being distributed to official mirror sites. An official announcement has not been released yet, but it surely will be later this day.
At the moment the official Mozilla web page where you can get Firefox 3.5 displays the RC3. If you do not want to wait until Mozilla updates its official download page, you can get Firefox 3.5 Final from other locations, like this one. If you already have Firefox 3.5 RC3 installed on your machine, the update will be served automatically to you. Alternatively you can manually check for updates – but chances are that they are not being distributed right now, maybe after the official announcement.

There is one thing that you should keep in mind: Firefox 3.5 RC3 was released just a couple of days ago, and now Firefox 3.5 Final is available for download. While I do applaud Mozilla’s commitment to release the software on June 30th as promised, I have to say that there will likely not be considerable differences between the RC and the final version. I will have to get back to you on this one, but if you know something I don’t, please leave a comment.

Firefox 3.5 highlights:
- Support for over 70 languages.
- Private Browsing Mode to help keep your browsing habits private. This feature is affectionately called “porn mode.”
- The new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine provides better performance and enhanced stability.
- Firefox 3.5 is location aware.
- Web worker threads and native JSON support.
- The Gecko layout engine has been improved. It even includes speculative parsing for faster content rendering.
- Support for various web technologies: downloadable fonts, CSS media queries, new transformations and properties, JavaScript query selectors, HTML5 local storage and offline application storage, text, ICC profiles, and SVG transforms.
- Watch videos in the browser window with no need for external programs or plug-ins.
- Tab tearing feature: drag a tab into a new window, drag tabs between browser windows.
