Mozilla Firefox 3.5 b99

Posted in Beta, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Software Companies, Web Apps, Windows

I have just received notification to upgrade my Firefox browser to the latest version of Mozilla Firefox 3.5 b99. The code “b99″ sounds a little interesting, as this is probably the first time I have seen Mozilla come up with this codename.

This version is a preview of Firefox 3.5, the upcoming version of the Firefox web browser. It has not yet gone through a full set of quality assurance tests, and should not be considered as a release candidate. Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate is expected to be issued shortly. At that time users will be automatically upgraded to that version.
