Mozilla has released Firefox 3.5 today. Here are some of the new features in Firefox 3.5, according to Mozilla:

  • Performance. Firefox 3.5 includes the powerful new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine, which delivers unprecedented performance with today’s complex Web applications. Firefox 3.5 is more than two times faster than Firefox 3 and ten times faster than Firefox 2.
  • Open Video and Audio. Enjoy video and audio content from within your browser, without the need for plugins.
  • Privacy Controls. Firefox 3.5 includes features designed to protect your privacy online and provide greater control over your personal data. While using the new Private Browsing mode in Firefox 3.5, nothing you encounter on the Web will be stored from that moment on during your browsing session. Unique to Firefox 3.5, the new Forget this Site feature can remove every trace of a site from your browser.
  • Location Aware Browsing. Location Aware Browsing saves you time by allowing websites to ask you where you are located. If you choose to share your location with a website, it can use that information to find nearby points of interest and return additional, useful data like maps of your area. It’s all optional – Firefox doesn’t share your location without your permission.

Mozilla team has released the 4th beta version for Firefox 3.5 (formerly Firefox 3.1). According the Mozilla developer center, here are the list of features that are new or changed in beta4.

  • Improved tools for controlling your private data, including a Private Browsing Mode.
  • Better performance and stability with the new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine.
  • The ability to provide Location Aware Browsing using web standards for geolocation.
  • Support for native JSON, and web worker threads.
  • Improvements to the Gecko layout engine, including speculative parsing for faster content rendering.
  • Support for new web technologies such as: HTML5 <video> and <audio> elements, downloadable fonts and other new CSS properties, JavaScript query selectors, HTML5 offline data storage for applications, and SVG transforms.

Here is a note about Firefox’s Geolocation feature. According to Mozilla, Geolocation lets websites know where you are in order to bring you more relevant information, or to save you time while searching. For example, if youre looking for pizza restaurants in your area, a simple search for pizza will bring you the answers you needno further information or extra typing required.

Some modern websites offer services that are richer and easier to use if they know your location (such as online mapping, or searching for specific things in your area). When you visit one of these sites, Firefox will ask you if you want it to provide the site with your current location.

If you choose to allow Geolocation, Firefox first looks for relevant location markers such as location data provided by a GPS device built into or attached to your computer or browsing device, the signal strength of nearby wireless hot spots and/or cell phone towers, and/or your computer or devices IP address.

So what about Privacy? Here is what Mozilla says: Firefox never shares your location without your direct permission. When you visit a page that requests your information, youll get a notification that you can accept or deny before any information is shared.

If you do authorize Geolocation, the following information is sent from Firefox to Google to retrieve your location based on WiFi and/or IP:

  • your IP address
  • information about nearby wireless access points
  • a temporary cookie-like identifier

This information is sent via an encrypted SSL connection to further protect your privacy. Google Location Services sends back to Firefox an estimate of your location which Firefox provides to the requesting web page. Google does not know the URL or domain of the requesting page.

It’s your choice to expose yourself or not.
