Mozilla Firefox 1.5 Beta 1 Available

September 9, 2005


Raucous applause was heard from the team. Someone mentioned a crazy man running about shouting something like “The new phone book’s here! The new phone book’s here!” No, that was Steve Martin who said that. But Asa has announced the news that Firefox 1.5 Beta 1 is now available. Downloads are available at the Mozilla site. But links to downloads can be found here: win32, mac, and linux. You can read the highlights with the release notes. But all the things I’ve been writing about in Deer Park are part of this build. Man, it’s exciting to see the new bits poised for public consumption! I think I am most excited about native svg support. A new era of web graphics is about ready to dawn on us!

At the same time, the lovable Greasemonkey team has released a new version of its work. Better said, Aaron has released the current branch with new version checking that works for Firefox 1.5 Beta 1. Since this is not a public beta of Greasemonkey, I won’t link to a download site. But you can check out the monkey business at the Greaseblog.

With both Firefox and Greasemonkey in alignment again, there is harmony in the universe – or my universe, at least.
