Firefox 1.5 Final Released
Firefox hit its second major milestone Tuesday with the release of version 1.5, arriving just over a year after the alternative browser debuted at 1.0. The update sports Mozilla's new Gecko 1.8 rendering engine to speed up Web surfing, along with a myriad of other fixes and improvements.
Notable changes in Firefox 1.5 include the ability to reorder tabs, faster back and forward buttons, a feature to clear personal data, improved accessibility and popup blocking, along with support for more Web standards such as SVG, CSS 2 and CSS 3, and JavaScript 1.6. Firefox 1.5 is available now for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

Mozilla Firefox project (formerly Firebird, which was formerly Phoenix) is a redesign of Mozilla's browser component, written using the XUL user interface language and designed to be cross-platform. It includes a popup blocker, tabbed browsing, a smarter search, hassle free downloading, and improved privacy and security.

Latest Changes:

* Automated update to streamline product upgrades
* Faster browser navigation with improvements to back and forward button performance
* Drag and drop reordering for browser tabs
* Improvements to popup blocking
* Clear Private Data feature provides an easy way to quickly remove personal data through a menu item or keyboard shortcut
* Answers.com is added to the search engine list
* Improvements to product usability including descriptive error pages, redesigned options menu, RSS discovery, and "Safe Mode" experience
* Better accessibility including support for DHTML accessibility and assistive technologies such as the Window-Eyes 5.5 beta screen reader for Microsoft Windows. Screen readers read aloud all available information in applications and documents or show the i
* Report a broken Web site wizard to report Web sites that are not working in Firefox
* Better support for Mac OS X (10.2 and greater) including profile migration from Safari and Mac Internet Explorer
* New support for Web Standards including SVG, CSS 2 and CSS 3, and JavaScript 1.6
* Many security enhancements

Downloading and installing right after I logoff from the forum .
Anyway the fast back/forward started on another browser AND firefox 1.5 is not as fast backing/forwarding as that other browser.
At least it wasn't untill 1.5RC3.
Let's see what Final has to offer...
Cheers

Beware...
Unfortunately, the "Mozilla Archive Format" extension does not work with the 1.5 version (yet).
