Mozilla released Firefox 7 for Windows, Mac, and Linux, and the new version of Firefox makes web browsing faster than ever.
Firefox 7 brings with it a host of changes; it now supports the ellipsis mode for the text-overflow property. Also, A new version of hardware-accelerated Canvas speeds up HTML5 animations and games in Firefox. This allows developers to build more compelling and interactive Web experiences like Angry Birds or Runfield. Finally, the browser now supports the Navigation Timing spec, which lets you monitor parts of a page’s performance within the page itself. Firefox also supports the W3C navigation timing spec API so developers can measure page load time and website navigation against bandwidth speed, website traffic and other factors. This API allows developers to test user experiences remotely and easily and quickly optimize websites and Web apps for different types of users.
The Firefox 7 team says that the latest version of the browser uses less memory, a reduction of anywhere between 20% and 50%. Team also said that Firefox 7′s improvements should be most noticeable to users who leave browser windows open for many hours or days on end, who browse with multiple tabs at once, who open image-heavy pages or pages with large amounts of text, who run Firefox on Windows machines or who use the browser simultaneously with other programs that take a large toll on memory.
