The long-awaited update to FireFox, version 1.5, is finally HERE!

 Here's what's new in Firefox 1.5:

  • Automated update to streamline product upgrades. Notification of an update is more prominent, and updates to Firefox may now be half a megabyte or smaller. Updating extensions has also improved. #Faster browser navigation with improvements to back and forward button performance. Drag and drop reordering for browser tabs.
  • Improvements to popup blocking. Clear Private Data feature provides an easy way to quickly remove personal data through a menu item or keyboard shortcut.
  • Answers.com is added to the search engine list.
  • Improvements to product usability including descriptive error pages, redesigned options menu, RSS discovery, and "Safe Mode" experience.
  • Better accessibility including support for DHTML accessibility and assistive technologies such as the Window-Eyes 5.5 beta screen reader for Microsoft Windows. Screen readers read aloud all available information in applications and documents or show the information on a Braille display, enabling blind and visually impaired users to use equivalent software functionality as their sighted peers. Report a broken Web site wizard to report Web sites that are not working in Firefox.
  • Many security enhancements

In addition, we've also go the latest version of Thunderbird, Version 1.0.7. Although this is only a stability and security upgrade, it is still worth the download.
