Firefox 3.5 gets third release candidate

Final countdown?

Remote control for virtualized desktops

Mozilla Corporation spun out a third release candidate for Firefox 3.5 yesterday.

The latest near-ready version of the open source browser contains minor fixes and tweaks to the new features loaded into Firefox 3.5.

The latest RC build is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux in over 70 different languages, said Mozilla.

On Monday the organisation spun out the second release candidate of Firefox 3.5, and yesterday’s arrival of a third RC suggests Mozilla is now very close to a complete version of the browser.

Indeed, the outfit is keen to stick to its deadline of releasing the oft-delayed browser before the end of this month.

Features loaded in the new browser include better tools for controlling private data, Private Browsing mode, better stability with Mozilla’s JavaScript engine, TraceMonkey, and the ability to provide "Location Aware Browsing" using web standards for geolocation. ®
