Firefox 3.6 Beta 1 Comes With Superbar and Orientation Detection

Written By Sam on 16 October 2009

Mozilla has released the full-fledged Beta 1 of Firefox 3.6 which is available for testing. This current version has been specially tailored to Windows 7 that too particularly to the development of the graphical user interfaces. Mozilla says that “A beta is indeed available, but I would like to clarify that the Beta programme for Firefox 3.6 has not yet launched; this is a test build, not necessarily Firefox 3.6 Beta 1.”.

The latest Firefox beta 1 has got many exciting features like thumbnail preview, improved javascript rendering engine, improved startup speed and preview pans in default Ctrl+Tab scrolling. You can also see the Taskbar Thumbnail Previews in this current version of Firefox 3.6. By placing the mouse over the Firefox 3.6 Beta it displays the thumbnails for each opened tab. You can navigate and simply preview the opened Firefox 3.6 window through the Thumbnail preview. Firefox 3.6 Beta Build 1 is available in internet and ready to download and installation on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux but this is not the final Beta.

Another interesting feature in Firefox 3.6 is the orientation detection. A lot of modern laptops come with accelerometers built in and the new browser can detect whether it is moving or held in landscape or portrait mode. You can also see some additional changes in this desegregation of Firefox 3.6 into Windows 7. By the way, Mozilla also worked on having got Firefox 3.6 support Jumplists, mini-Start menus which comes through right-click on the Taskbar of the browser icon and easy to access the most visited sites.
