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.


#5 Google Toolbar

A Google representative indicated last week in one of Google's Toolbar forums that this was nearly ready for release, and suggested that it would be available by the time the final version of the browser is officially released as such. This is typical of Google. It seems that when FF 2 came along, it was right at the final release before Google's updated toolbar was available. I, too, am eager for the Google Toolbar. The built-in multi-purpose search bar still doesn't do everything, such as highlighting the keyword or jumping to the next instance of a keyword with a click of the mouse.
