Firefox 6 was slated for release on the 16th of this month but was made available sans an official announcement some two days early. If you’re a hardcore Firefox fan you will notice absolutely nothing noticeable in the new release. The latest version boasts faster speeds, better loading of Panorama (tab groups) and better more convenient syncing. The release has more bug fixes than it has new features and the only solitary and truly noticeable cosmetic change is that the domain names are now highlighted in the URL bar.
