Mozilla Firefox 3.0 - Gran Paradiso Alpha 5: out in June


Firefox LogoYet another, fifth, alpha-version of Firefox 3.0, one of the three most popular internet browsers, designated Gran Paradiso, is due out on the first day of summer.

The first alpha-version of Firefox 3.0 was out in December 2006. It was recommended to professional and advanced users, who were able to essentially change the source code of the software.

Mozilla representatives state that the fifth alpha version will feature many new functions and abilities, such as SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), which gives support of a wide range of vector graphic formats. The developers say that Gran Paradiso will be characterized by great stability and security and that it will give the users ability to work with their sites off-line.

It is also worth mentioning that the fifth alpha-version will feature the same system of tabs, yet with the ability to sort them by their visiting rate. Firefox 3.0 will also feature a built-in SQLite database, which will save all the information about visited pages. The developers of the browser have paid much attention to off-line works. The users will be able to freely browse cached pages, to use special apps for searching images, texts and files.

The final release of Gran Paradiso - Mozilla Firefox 3.0 - is planned to happen at the end of 2007.
