Mozilla Releases Fifth and Final Beta of Firefox 3.6

A fifth, and final, beta of Firefox 3.6 has been released by Mozilla, the complete version of which the firm is planning to release before the end of the current year. The browser's latest beta 5 update is bundled with a couple of tweaks to how Mozilla allows "third party software to slot into the browse".

With the change, the company is expecting to prevent crashes experienced by users of the browser.

"This version is also faster and more responsive than previous versions, and has been optimized to run on small device operating systems such as Windows CE and Maemo", noted Mozilla.

As shared by the company, the upcoming browser also has some changes including "support for the HTML 5 file API, a tweak to how third-party software integrates with Firefox to beef up stability, and a mechanism to prevent incompatible software from crashing the browser".

The latest beta has been made available in as many as 70 languages and contains over 100 bug fixes since the last beta which was released during Thanksgiving last month.
