Firefox 16 FINAL for Windows, Mac and Linux - Only a short time ago, we had to wait over a year for a major new release of any web browser. Often longer. There was a huge gap between Firefox 3 and Firefox 4, with many alphas, betas and numerous release candidates. That was before Google changed the game with Chrome, with rapid releases, quickly switching between stable, beta, dev and Canary.
Recently, Mozilla decided to change the way they would release a new version of Firefox, somewhat mimicking the Chrome release schedule. Currently v16 Final for Windows, Mac and Linux. You can now download this stable version of new Firefox at the end of this page.
Firefox 16 is now in the stable channel.
What's new in Firefox 16 FINAL? Initial desktop support for web apps, VoiceOver accessibility features for OS X, extra developer tools and enhanced garbage collection performance to prevent freezes and performance lags. The list:
