It seems like only yesterday we were updating to Firefox 5 (for those hazy on the details, version 5 was officially released June 20), but already it's time to move on. The latest iteration of Mozilla's Firefox web browser, Firefox 6, is now here and ready for consumption. Here's the link for Windows. Mac and Linux (click here for X64) versions are also available.
So, what can you expect Firefox 6 to bring? Well, don't hold your breath for a lot of visual differences. The Firefox UI has remained the same for the most part as the bulk of the changes for this release are happening behind the scenes. The most noticeable cosmetic change is that the address bar now highlights the domain of the website you're visiting. Under the hood there's added support for the latest version of WebSocket as well as stream-lined performance when it comes to start times and opening large numbers of tabs at once. There's also the addition of a new permissions tool that will allow the end-user better control of which websites are storing what information (cookies, passwords, location, etc.).
