This is the second final release as part of Mozilla’s new rapid release cycle.
So what’s new in Firefox 6? Well, just like Firefox 5, not much. Most of the new features are things many users wouldn’t care about or even notice.
The address bar now highlights the current domain, which is a security feature. The domain name is displayed in a darker font than that of the subdomains and directories.
The site identify got a slight facelift. It now looks significantly lighter than before.
Browser startup time when using Panorama has also been reduced. There are also several security and stability improvements.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I really think Mozilla should have used version numbers like 4.1, 4.2, etc… Point releases are still considered major (like 3.5 and 3.6) and wouldn’t cause as much confusion among those who aren’t aware of the rapid release cycle.
