Firefox 1.0 released

I’m entering this post right now with Firefox 1.0 (ftp download). Looks like they added in a more visible ‘critical updates’ notification (little red thing shows up next to the search box). Also of note, is the new Firefox Google start page. Hmm, I wonder what Google could be cooking up.

UPDATE: Also, if you feel like giving a little to help further develop Firefox and the other cool Mozilla Foundation projects, you could always buy a Firefox t-shirt. I just bought a Navy one.

  1. I don’t know if it was available in previous versions of Firefox (I went from 0.8 to 1.0), but the live bookmark feature is brilliant. You get an RSS logo on the right-hand side of the staus bar of websites with an RSS feed, where you can subscribe with a single click.

  2. Yep, I don’t really use it much since I use Bloglines for all my RSS feeds, but it’s definitely a nice feature to have.

    I think it could be even better if it would give you some sort of visual notification when a site is updated… so instead of using Bloglines, I could just bookmark all my RSS feeds and firefox would highlight it when the site is updated. Or maybe it’s possible to do this already with Firefox extensions?

    I’ll also be interested to see how Safari’s new RSS functionality stacks up to Firefox’s.
