The Mozilla Foundation today released Firefox 1.0, the first major new product release since the Mozilla Suite’s 1.0 in June of 2002. Firefox 1.0 is the completion of roughly 2 years of work on the revolutionary new browser, which has raised the Mozilla Foundation’s profile greatly in its year of existance. The release follows up the hugely successful Preview Release which had over eight million downloads.
Included in the release is a new start page which was formulated from user research including the home page poll taken here. Futhermore, the release will feature over a dozen localized builds released at the same time as the main English build, a first for the Foundation. In coming days, the Foundation expects at least a dozen more to be available.
Builds are available from GetFirefox.com or from the FTP server and release notes are also available. Support is available in our Firefox Support Forum and you can discuss the release in the other Firefox Forums.
