The latest version of the popular Firefox browser will be released today. Version 1.5, which has been in beta for some time, offers a number of enhancements, including an automated update to streamline product upgrades. Faster navigation is also promised, as is improvements to back and forward button performance. But a really interesting feature which I liked was drag and drop reordering for browser tabs. There are also features to better protect against popups, and a quick Clear Private Data button.
There are also more security enhancements than you can poke a stick at. Firefox 1.0 appeared a year ago and the release of 1.5 is expected to come with a big marketing push from the Mozilla Foundation.
