Firefox 3.1 beta 1 is out

Markus Eisele
Firefox 3.1 Beta 1 is out and with it comes a huge pile of new features for developers. While those of you who follow Mozilla’s web-tech blog might know about some of them. Together with the release of the first beta of 3.1 a short summary of the bigger features can be found in the related posting.

  • Geolocation

  • @font-face

  • Video and Audio support

  • XHR enhancements

  • TraceMonkey

There are several other features that are scheduled for Firefox 3.1 Beta 2 and are partially implemented in the beta 1 already. Mozilla will talk about more once Beta 2 is available. Some of the things you can expect are Worker Threads for JavaScript, new graphics, SVG and CSS capabilities and probably other things as well. The Firefox 3.1 for Developers page is the full source for new stuff that’s coming for 3.1.
