    [news=http://img384.imageshack.us/img384/8549/firefox154ue.gif] Firefox 1.5 Beta 1 (Deer Park)

    Firefox 1.5 Beta 1 is now available for download. This is the first Beta release of our next generation Firefox browser, to be released later this year, and it is being made available to our developer and testing community for compatibility testing and to solicit feedback.

    Note: This is not the final release of our Web browser, it has been made available for testing purposes only, with no end-user support. If that sounds scary, you'd probably be better off with the latest version of Firefox 1.0.

    Download Firefox 1.5 Beta 1


    See the Firefox 1.5 Beta 1 release notes.


    Here's what's new in Firefox 1.5 Beta 1:


    • Automated update to streamline product upgrades. Notification of an update is more prominent, and updates to Firefox may now be half a megabyte or smaller. Updating extensions has also improved.
    • Faster browser navigation with improvements to back and forward button performance.
    • Drag and drop reordering for browser tabs.
    • Improvements to popup blocking.
    • Clear Private Data feature provides an easy way to quickly remove personal data through a menu item or keyboard shortcut.
    • Answers.com is added to the search engine list.
    • Improvements to product usability including descriptive error pages, redesigned options menu, RSS discovery, and "Safe Mode" experience.
    • Better accessibility support including DHTML accessibility.
    • Report a broken Web site wizard to report Web sites that are not working in Firefox.
    • Better support for Mac OS X (10.2 and greater) including profile migration from Safari and Mac Internet Explorer.
    • New support for Web Standards including SVG, CSS 2 and CSS 3, and JavaScript 1.6.
    • Many security enhancements.
    • List of notable bug fixes since Deer Park Alpha 2

    I like the auto update idea great news , but was reading about this :

    Mozilla Corp. has released the first official beta of Firefox 1.5, the next major update of the group's open source browser, with organization officials on Friday touting that the new application's faster and can more easily be updated. That may be tested sooner than Mozilla might have wanted, for also on Friday, a security researcher posted information and proof-of-concept code for a major vulnerability in most versions of Firefox, including the beta.

    I upgraded, and I lost undoclosetab AND Web Developer, both invaluable extensions to me.
    Let this serve as a warning for those who thinks about upgrading
    Web Developer is being made compatible with 1.5 as we speak, though
    Sage goes in the signature field.
