Yet another reason to choose Firefox 3.5 over IE 8

Yesterday, after about a year of delays, Mozilla released the newest iteration of its Firefox web client, 3.5. It did so without the fanfare attached to its 3.0 release, but added some nifty new features to pull it back on par with Internet Explorer and Google’s Chrome. The biggest feature that 3.5 added which its competitors already had was private browsing. You can even tell Firefox to ‘forget’ when every time you view a certain website, a feature that will prove invaluable for spies and teenage boys the world over.

At any rate, without the big hoo-hah of 3.0, can 3.5 do much to increase Firefox’s current market share of about 20%? Things look to stay quite steady with Internet Explorer very slowly losing ground to Firefox, and I can’t see this changing any time soon, unless IE does something really heinous that could make the world turn against them. Oh.

Not only is this deal with the Devil sponsored by Live Nation, you have to install Microsoft Silverlight to get it! Firefox FTW, I’d say.
