More on Firefox 10.0

From the point of view of a typical user, the changes introduced in the most recent version of Firefox, Firefox 10.0, were relatively minor.  Bug fixes aside, most of what’s new in this version is actually aimed at Web developers.  Wired has an overview article pointing out some of the new capabilities.  Among the notable new tools for developers are “inspectors” for Distributed Object Model [DOM] and Cascading Style Sheet [CSS] elements; there is also a new full-screen API.

The article also reminds us that Firefox 10.0 is the first of the extended support releases, intended to provide a longer-lived supported platform for enterprise users.
