Paul Lilly

Mozilla yesterday made available its fourth beta release of the upcoming Firefox 3.5 browser, which the company says represents the sixth development milestone. As covered in our Browser Battle feature , Firefox 3.5 (formerly referred to as Firefox 3.1) is built around the Gecko 1.9.1 rendering platform, which Mozilla claims has been in development for the past 10 months.

According to Mozilla, this latest beta release includes improved tools for controlling your private data, better performance and stability with the TraceMonkey JavaScript engine, Location Aware Browsing using web standards for geolocation, support for native JSON, enhancements to the Gecko rendering engine for faster performance, and various other tweaks.

Minus a handful of known issues -- choppy OGG video/audio playback on older computers to name just one -- Mozilla says the beta 4 release is considered stable, however still intended for developers and members of its testing community.
