Just a quick post letting you know that version 3.5 of our favorite web browser has gone final and has been released to the public. You can get the update by going here or by navigating to the Help menu within Firefox and clicking on “Check for Updates.” It will find an update and allow you to download and install from within the browser. On the surface, the browser looks and acts very similar. The big feature updates include faster browsing performance, faster startup, the addition of a private browsing mode and location awareness for sites that support that. It is still available for Windows, Mac and Linux and most of the existing extensions and themes should work with the update. I did find one of my favorite extensions, No Squint, did not work but I am sure that an update will be forthcoming soon.
