Mozilla today released Firefox 5, the latest version of the world's second most popular web-browser.

Mozilla has transitioned to a rapid release cycle for Firefox, offering more full-featured releases more quickly than previously. Firefox 4 was released just this past March.

The company claims 1,000 improvements and enhancements are present in this version of Firefox, including support for "more modern Web technologies that make it easier for developers to build amazing Firefox Add-ons, Web applications and websites." See full release notes for more information.

Note: Firefox 5 is Intel-only. There is no PPC version available.

FF5 3 months after FF4's release? That is the worst abuse of version numbers I've ever seen. This really should be FF4.1.

Off to a bad start. FF5 doesn't display Apple's Mac page correctly.


No kidding. Just tried it myself. I don't know why people swear by Firefox, it's not that great of a browser. It's become a bloated mess and feels clunky to use compared to Safari and Chrome.
