Piriform, the privately owned UK software developer dedicated to creating top quality applications for Windows, announced yesterday, the 27th of June, that it updated its CCleaner application to version 3.08. People keeping track of these things will remember that version 3.06 showed Opera some love and that version 3.07 showed Flash Player some love. Well, version 3.08 shows Mozilla’s Firefox 5.0 some love.

“Browsers are being updated more frequently... or maybe it's just the version numbers. :) With Firefox 5.0 having been released this week, we've been focused on keeping the high level of compatibility that CCleaner has with all browsers,” explained Piriform.

Firefox 5.0 graduated out of Beta last week. As Mozilla announced at the time, Firefox 5.0 “includes more than more than 1,000 improvements and performance enhancements that make it easier to discover and use all of the innovative features in Firefox.”

If you don’t know what’s new in Firefox 5.0, here’s the lowdown:
- CSS animations are supported.
- The Do-Not-Track header preference is now displayed in the Privacy section of the Options dialog. The move is meant to increase discoverability of the Do Not Track feature that allows tell advertising networks, websites, and application that you want to opt-out of behavioral advertising tracking.
- Performance improvements. Improved canvas, JavaScript, memory, and networking performance. In the SunSpider test, Firefox 5 is 9% faster than Firefox 4.
- Improved standards support for HTML5, XHR, MathML, SMIL, and canvas.
- Improved spell checking for some locales
- Improved desktop environment integration for Linux users.
- Background tabs have setTimeout and setInterval clamped to 1000ms to improve performance
- Several security problems have been addressed. You can read about the security bulletins that accompany Firefox 5 here.
