Mozilla Integrates 3D Developer Tool Into Firefox 11

By - Source: Mozilla | B 14 comments

Firefox 11 has surfaced as an Aurora developer build on Mozilla's website and provides a first glimpse at the new features coming soon.

There is already plenty of criticism that this new version is not including enough of the new features for the average users, but instead mainly developer tools. Among those new features is one particularly interesting feature - Tilt.

Some readers may remember Tilt as an add-on that enabled the user to display the structure of a web page as three-dimensional graphic with its building blocks. There is not much use of this feature for the general user, but it useful analyzing a web page with all of its elements nested in the DOM. In Aurora 11, Tilt is fully integrated in the Page Inspector via a new 3D button. The feature is implemented via WebGL and is hardware accelerated. Viewing options include zooming (+/-), rotating (a/d and w/s), as well as panning (arrow keys).

You can download Aurora 11 here to check out the 3D feature.

    i'll stick with my 64-bit native opera 12 alpha. :) 

    at least opera doesn't inflate their releases like firefox and chrome just to get make them look more mature. version 11 of firefox should have been version 3.6.11. chrome should be at version 1.18.0 instead of version 18. if you must use chrome, use srware iron instead. iron removes chrome's spyware/call home/tracking features.

    No Firefox girl? It is fairly interesting where the Firefox girl photo came from.

    What percentage of Firefox users are developers? 1%? 2%? So everyone else has to suffer the overheads of developer tools that they have no use for. Another poor choice made by Firefox! Put developer tools in a SDK or integrated development environment, not in the basic product.

    Performance tests show developer tools add no overhead.

    So they occupy no disk storage or memory? Wow, it's a miracle! And if they never occupy memory, we won't have to worry about some hack exploiting a bug in them.

    Nearly no memory unless you are running them, and 0.005 Gigs of storage.. Well too bad for you, but this is my world of suffer -D
