Firefox 6.0 on Ubuntu 11.04

Barely a day had gone and Firefox 6 is already available to Ubuntu 11.04 users. Just fire up Update Manager and pull in today's updates if you haven't already to enjoy Mozilla's latest and greatest.

So, what does Firefox 6 bring? The three most impactful, I'd say are:
  • Reduced browser startup time when using Panorama
  • Fixed several stability issues
  • Fixed several security issues
Startup time, stability and security improvements are always good. More improvements available on the release notes. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait at least another 6 weeks before we get to enjoy improvements to Firefox memory management.
