Firefox utilizes the Mozilla code repository called Mozilla Code Studio for producing portable applications, and for building Portable Security Applications (PSA) – a web browser security application that can be used for detecting security vulnerabilities. Firefox also utilizes the Open Source code repository called Mozilla repository for the source code. Mozilla has licensed the source code so that other companies or people cannot use it for any purpose without permission. The Mozilla developers also continue to optimize the coding to make it run faster and more efficiently on different operating systems including Windows, Linux, Mac OS, and Solaris.
Mozilla Firefox has a number of new features that make browsing the net a more enjoyable experience, including the Windows interface, the Firefox toolbar, and the built-in search engine. The Firefox designers took advantage of the Microsoft public license for this. They made this open source web browser available under the Mozilla Public License (MPL), which allows free downloading and usage on the internet. This means that anyone who downloads the Mozilla Firefox 3 will not have to pay royalties for the software.

First of all, the interface in Mozilla Firefox 3 is now much easier to customize. This version offers seamless integration with Personas, Mozilla’s theme gallery for Firefox, which lets you apply new Firefox themes to your browser with a single mouse click. What’s more, you can try them on the browser before actually applying them, just by hovering your mouse over the theme’s name.
Another impressive new feature in Mozilla Firefox 3 is the native support for watching videos in full screen – as long as they’ve got the HTML5 ‘video’ tag. Simply right click on the video and select the “Full screen” mode to turn the browser into a media player. Also, Mozilla Firefox 3 has released a new online service called Plugin Check, which helps you check for new updates for your plugins – quite handy, especially if you’re as addicted to Mozilla Firefox 3 addons as I am!
Regarding efficiency and stability, the new Mozilla Firefox 3 includes the latest version of the Gecko engine and has improved Java performance. These two elements are meant to provide a faster web browsing – which has been its weakest point of late. While I haven’t tested the final version long enough, I have to say I’ve been using the betas and release candidates for a while, and I’m quite happy with the program’s response.
In all, the new features included in Mozilla Firefox 3 may not be as many or as spectacular as other releases, but they do provide a better user experience in terms of usability, customization and performance.
Mozilla Firefox 3 continues its steady development and adds interesting new features and improvements in its latest version.
