Some users were disappointed with the release of Mozilla Firefox 2.0. After months of betas, release candidates and previews, the new features weren’t as spectacular as people expected. However, there is only so much you can do to improve a web browser.
With the release of Mozilla Firefox 3, the web graphics rendering engine has received a completely new upgrade, resulting in a much improved and faster browsing experience. Dubbed ‘ Cairo’, the new graphics rendering engine should improve the output across different platforms, as it’s being developed as an open-standard. Mozilla Firefox 3.0 is based around the Gecko 1.9 rendering engine.
With other improvements in the way that pages are ‘painted’ on screen, improved SVG support and CSS enhancements, the general improvements for Firefox 3.0 are based around the way it will render web pages through the browser.
However, the improvements do not stop there. Firefox 3 ships with an improved user-interface, a better way of handling your bookmarks, improved security and many other enhancements.
Note that this is the portable version of Firefox 3.
