Get your mittens, Firefox 3.6 is out!
What are some of the hot new features you'll find in this release?
- Personas: Personalize the look of your Firefox by selecting new themes called Personas in a single click and without a restart
- Plugin Updater: To keep you safe from potential security vulnerabilities, Firefox will now detect out of date plugins
- Stability improvements: Firefox 3.6 significantly decreased crashes caused by third party software – all without sacrificing our extensibility in any way
- Form Complete: When filling out an online form, Firefox suggests information for fields based on your common answers in similar field
- Open Video and Audio: With the world’s best implementation of HTML 5 audio and video support, now video can be displayed full screen and supports poster frames
My personal fav is Personas. It's just awesome to make your browser look the way you want it to look, any day, any time, in a single click and without a restart! Personas are so cool that I even created my own :)
If you wan to join in on the Personas fun and help celebrate the launch of Firefox 3.6, tell the world about your favorite Persona -- in pictures.
Just showcase a Persona that reflects your individuality by taking a photo with it. Here's how:
* Select your favorite Persona on Firefox and create a screen capture of your browser window. Cut it out and take a photo with it. Here's a great template to help you.
* Take a photo upclose with you next to your computer and your Persona-clad browser.
* If you're super creative, have fun with digital imaging software and put your picture in your browser like this one.
* Or you can copy and enlarge design elements from your favorite Persona into an image editor to create a placard, a mask and more!
Feel free to get super creative. You can also gather friends for a group photo. Whatever you do, share it with the world. Here are a few ways:
* Upload to Flickr or your favorite photo sharing site and tag with "personas".
* Post on Twitter, Identi.ca or Mozillaca using Twitpic or bit.ly to shorten your Flickr URL along with a link to our new Personas video (http://bit.ly/fx36pyt)
* Make it your new profile picture on Facebook, Ning or Orkut.
* Add it to our fan photos on Firefox's Facebook page.
Have fun and stay-tuned for a showcase of all the great Personas pictures like we did for Five Years of Firefox.
