After two RC editions few days ago, Mozilla has released the final version of Firefox 3.6. This Firefox version is based on Gecko 1.9.2 Engine, developed since the beginning of last year. The new engine delivers improvements and more speed for page views and JavaScript and significantly lower times for startup and responsiveness when browsing.

On UI way, the biggest news is improved Personas - it is a simple way of changing Firefox appearance. If you want to change or preview some of the skins, just point your mouse over the selected skin and if you want it on your Firefox just click wear it. Simple.

Firefox 3.6 has added support for new CSS attributes such as gradients, background sizing, and pointer events, added WOFF web format and new fonts and support for new DOM and HTML5 specifications including the Drag & Drop API and the File API. Open, native video can now be played full screen.

The new Firefox has safety protection from outdated plugins, and also improved stability when using third-party plugin integration.

The browser is available via the update or directly from official Mozilla page.

How to install it on Ubutu? Here is simple tutorial:

First add Mozilla ppa daily repository, open terminal and copy/paste the next line for adding repositories and installing.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox-3.6

If you already have Mozilla repositories then open your terminal and copy/paste this line
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Have fun.
