I know, I know. When will Mozilla stop with all these Firefox updates? It seems not anytime soon because tomorrow marks the day that Firefox 9.0 is officially released. As usual, the official update has hit Mozilla’s FTP servers letting avid Firefox users get the update a few hours ahead of time. We have the download links and all the info on what’s new in Firefox 9 including improved Mac OS X compatibility, a new UI for Android tablets, and more.
Improved Mac OS X Lion Compatibility
If you’ve been using previous releases of Firefox on Mac OS X, you’ll be happy to know that multi-touch gestures (like natural scrolling) have been added. Firefox will also feel better aesthetically thanks to an improved theme integration.
Inside the mobile version of Firefox 9 comes a new user interface for Android tablets. Ian Barlow, the visual designer for Firefox Mobile’s User Experience team, has posted more screenshots like the one above on his Flickr page.
