Firefox 3.1 Beta 2 Available


The Mozilla team announced on Monday the availability of Firefox 3.1 Beta 2. New and notable:

  • A new Private Browsing mode (a la Google Chrome)
  • Increased language support (54, count 'em).
  • TraceMonkey, the incredibly fast new JavaScript engine, is now enabled by default.
  • Support for web worker threads.
  • Improvements to the Gecko layout engine, including speculative parsing for fast content rendering.
  • Support for <audio> and <video> from HTML 5.
  • Support for the W3C Geolocation API.
  • Numerous other improvement, including JavaScript query selectors, additional CSS 2.1 and 3 properties, SVG transforms, and offline applications.

All in all, Firefox 3.1 is shaping up to be another big home run for Mozilla. You can download the beta here.
