Screencast Introduces New Mozilla Firefox 3 Features

Friday June 6th, 2008

Mike Beltzner has created a screencast introducing some of the new features in the forthcoming Mozilla Firefox 3. The overview, which is in Adobe Flash SWF format and lasts three minutes and forty-six seconds, covers the new Location bar autocomplete functionality (dubbed the "awesomebar" by its fans), one-click bookmarking using the new star button, bookmark tags, the site identity button (personified by Larry the passport officer), malware protection, improvements to the file download user interface and the built-in Add-ons browser.

I agree. Visual cues are helpful.

I also think the new arrow (for 'Go to the address in the Location Bar') is too small and easy to miss (1. Accessibility anyone?, 2. Does no one else copy/paste links into the Location Bar using their mouse?, 3. Moving it to the left of the drop-down from the right really didn't help).
