Mozilla Firefox 1.5 Beta 1 Released

FireFox 1.5 Beta 1Mozilla Firefox 1.5 Beta 1 is now available for download. This is the first beta release of the next major Firefox, which will be widely promoted to end-users, is scheduled for later this year.
New features include an improved software update system, faster Back and Forward navigation (I’m testing it and it’s really fast!), a feature for clearing private browsing data, drag-and-drop reordering of browser tabs, a redesigned Options/Preferences window and better popup blocking. Web standards support is also improved:

  • Support for Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
  • JavaScript 1.6 and more CSS
  • Accessibility is also better (including new DHTML accessibility features)
  • Security has been enhanced and there’s now greater support for Mac OSX

Please note that installing FireFox over previous version will disable almost all downloaded extensions which are not compatible with this version of Firefox.
Beta 2 is scheduled for release on Wednesday 5th October and the first release candidate is due on Friday 28th October.


Today I received an email announcing me the new sourceforge project regarding Flash.
This is the direct link to the download area:…download
Reading the documentation (contained in the .zip file d/dl):
The project is intended to extend Macromedia Flash player (version 7.x or +) capabilities to parse XHTML formatted pages and render them into the Flash stage.

FP XHTML Render supports the most common HTML tags

It also supports various CSS attributes.
In fact, once downloaded the zip file from sourceforge i see at the example provided.
The test html page with table and cells too is perfect rendered, as i can see..
Now, let’s try something more complex than the provided example 😉
