New Firefox Browser Brings Speed and Video

I sound a bit like a broken record these days. Speed and video. Speed and video.

Only last week it was the new iPhone touting these two words. Now it’s the turn of the Mozilla Foundation who today released a new version of its wildly popular Firefox browser.

Firefox 3.5 comes with a slew of new features but the ones that most interest here at Vook are its pronounced improvements in rendering Javascript (in layman’s terms, makes everything feel faster) and the addition of the new HTML 5.0 support for audio and video files (two words, embedded video).

The combination of both of these advances make our vision for rich, interactive vooks that live inside your browser that more exciting.

Now, if we can only convince everyone to upgrade!
