firefox 推出 8.0

firefoxMozilla 的開發團隊繼續以高速把 firefox 版本由 7.0.1 升級至 8.0. 依照這個開發進度 firefox 有機會將版本進一步推至 9.0, 估中與否大家拭目以待. 就更新清單所見今次更新似乎主力改進安全問題, 例如會預設停用第三方插件. 最值得留意是內置加入了 twitter 搜尋功能, 似乎是直接搜尋 twitter 而非透過搜尋器去處理.

在運作速度上與前版差不多. 另外, 附加插件通常在每次升級時都有不支援既情況已減少了很多. 這個是開發團隊努力既成果. 不過, 小棗仍認為版本增長太過快速並非一件好事.

The latest version of Firefox has the following changes:

  • Add-ons installed by third party programs are now disabled by default
  • Added a one-time add-on selection dialogto manage previously installed add-ons
  • Added Twitter to the search bar for select locales. Additional locale support will be added in the future
  • Added a preference to load tabs on demand, improving start-up time when windows are restored
  • Improved performance and memory handling when using <audio> and <video> elements
  • Added CORS support for cross-domain texturesin WebGL
  • Added support for HTML5 context menus
  • Added support for insertAdjacentHTML
  • Improved CSS hyphensupport for many languages
  • Improved WebSocket support
