The first thing you notice about this version is it's appearance. The interface has been completely revamped and is has a much more modern appearance that previous versions. One of the first impressions I had was that it looks a lot more like Google Chrome, with the tabs setting higher and with curved instead of sharp edges. Firefox retains its separate search box and address boxes instead of combining them as other browsers, such as Internet Explorer and Chrome have done. The search box is fully customizable and allows you to easily select the search engine of your choice. The tools menu provides access to browser options and settings as well as manage add-ons/extensions and customizations. This update is not just UI enhancements. It also contains significant security and stability improvements. This latest release of Firefox is definitely a Must Have for all users. For a complete list of new and improved features please see the release notes.

The authors of other browsers must be getting pretty worried right now with the latest release of Google's excellent browser. It's hard to believe but it seems to be even faster than before. This browser loads faster than any other browser I've tested so far. Web pages also load extremely fast. It has a clean and simple interface that is very easy to use. Highly secure with built in malware and phishing protection. This release contains a number of security fixes and stability updates. Note: The latest version of Google Chrome will automatically update itself with no action required by the user. More info-GoogleWinappslist Award for Excellence
