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, , 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

Beta 2 is scheduled for release on Wednesday 5th October and the first release candidate is due on Friday 28th October. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/
