Firefox 1.5 beta 1 is out. I’ve been tracking Deer Park (the pre-beta releases of Firefox) for a while now so I’m excited to see this new release. I’m particularly enthusiastic about the canvas support as I’m having fun playing around with vector graphics. The Firefox canvas is much more complete, though slower, than Apple’s buggy implementation in Safari. The other new features don’t excite me as much, as the web applications I develop run on the general Internet. If you have a closed environment they will be more useful. In such an environment, XULRunner becomes very interesting.
