Download Firefox 11 Alpha (Aurora)Now with 3D Web Inspector and data migration.

As noted in our previous post, Mozilla has recently pushed the first branch of Firefox 11 builds to its Aurora channel.

Although there is already a bunch of new features that were implemented, such as: new web standards support and redesigned media controls for HTML5 videos, two of the most notable ones are: 3D Web Inspector (you can read more about it here) and data migration, which allows users to transfer their data from Google Chrome to Firefox profile.

Is that all there is? Not really, Firefox 11 and Firefox 12 will include New Tab Page, Firefox Home Tab and more.

    As with every new Firefox release, Firefox 11 will also include a bunch of memory related improvements that fall under the work of the Memshrink Project. These fixes contribute more to the speed and responsiveness of the browser than any of the fixes listed a “new features” but because they aren’t overly visible or easily understood by the average user they never get a mention. They slip under the radar un-noticed but they are the reason that Firefox is getting better and better.

    Nicholas Nethercote documents the major Memshrink improvements in his blog for those that want to know more.

    More and more useless features from FF devs but of course after they got so much money from Google, they can waste them anyway they want. After 3 years, FF will have the same number of users that are no using FF for Android
