[FF] Mozilla Firefox 1.5 RC1 Released

Mozilla 官方在剛剛發佈了 Mozilla Firefox 1.5 RC 1, 距離 1.5 正式版推出的腳步又更近一步了。另外, RC 2 版預定在本月 11 日發佈。由於兩版時間相近, 因此正在用 1.5 Beta 2 版的人要不要更新就請自行決定了。至於一般較不急於嚐鮮的使用者, 就請等 1.5 正式版發佈再更新也不遲。

1.5 RC1 Release Notes:
  • 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 including support for DHTML accessibility and assistive technologies such as the Window-Eyes 5.5 beta screen reader for Microsoft Windows. Screen readers read aloud all available information in applications and documents or show the information on a Braille display, enabling blind and visually impaired users to use equivalent software functionality as their sighted peers.
  • 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 Firefox 1.5 Beta 2.
