Firefox 4 Beta 1 is here, here is what is new for developers

Postby SQLDenis on Wed Jul 07, 2010 2:21 am

Web developers will be interested in some of the changes we’ve made under the hood:

HTML5 Parser: Run the best Web apps of today and tomorrow – if a user’s browser doesn’t support HTML5, they still won’t miss out on your content.

WebSockets: Build real-time, online interactions like gaming and chatting.

IndexedDB: Use structured storage in your Web applications to speed them up or provide offline support.

Web Console: Peek into dynamic websites with this experimental “Heads Up Display” analysis tool.

Simpler Add-On Development: Authors can create Add-Ons that don’t require a restart to install, develop their Add-Ons more quickly using the new powerful Jetpack SDK, and safely connect to existing libraries using js-ctypes.

For a full list of Web technologies supported by Firefox check out our “big chart o’ features.”
