Strong opinions, weakly held

Now that’s what I call fast

I downloaded and installed Firefox 1.5 Beta 1 today because there’s nothing I love better than the beta version of a Web browser. You can read about all the cool new features in the release notes, and what the browser offers developers in an article by Simon Willison, but what you really want to do is install it and try using the back and forward buttons. I had no complaints about the back button previously, but it is now instantaneous. I’m eager to see how much better the popup blocking is as well — advertisers seem to have caught up wtih the current release of Firefox to a certain degree.


  1. OH wow – SVG and CSS3 support??!

    Yee haw!

    Now if only we could get xform support, I’d be in heaven.

  2. Quick, and looks nice too. Now to find out if it bogs down after loading a few websites, as 1.0 does on my work Linux machine. (May not be Firefox’s fault, could be a plugin or something, but I’d still like it not to happen.)
