Firefox has tweaked and added features to its Web Browser with the release of Firefox3.5 . Firefox claims that it is much faster than previous versions but the difference could not be felt on a fast internet connection. The difference was noticed only when the bandwidth was low. Firefox comes with support now for more than 70 languages. It now supports Ogg Theora encoded Video and Ogg Theora encoded Audio  keeping in line with its open source traditions. A private browsing mode with the option to completely remove any traces of the site visited is also supported. In this mode no data of any sort will be “remembered”. THis includes cookies, forms, passwords and other data including web cache files. Files that were downloaded while in private session will not be displayed in the downloads list. However bookmarks created will not be erased.Location aware browsing is also supported where information can be passed to the websites which tell the location of the user which allows more choice for the user location wise. Support for native JSON and web worker threads are also provided. Support for the lates web technologies include downloadable fonts, color correction, CSS media queries, Javascript query selectors, HTML 5 local storages and SVG transformations. Firefox as usual is packed with features.
