Yet again, we have a new Firefox 3 version: Firefox 3 Alpha 7.

What’s new in it? There are some great stuff like zoom and that’s not all. Here’s a complete list of changes and fixes:

  • Support for Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) has been removed. Gecko 1.9 will no longer build or run on Mac OS X 10.3
  • Default visited pages history size 9 to 180 days
  • Full page zoom of images, layout and text
  • Many fixes for context menus, clipboard, and drag services on Mac OS X
  • Reworking of XUL menus and popups
  • document.all now returns a NodeList of elements
  • Several new clipboard events
  • A class of wrappers to mediate access between web pages from different origins
  • Cross site XMLHttpRequest specification implemented
  • A method for opening modal dialogs from content
  • Color profile support
  • Text in canvas

Here’s what I got after trying to run Firefox 3 Alpha 7:
