The developers of Firefox have released a new preview of Firefox 3.7, a browser that will never be released under that version. Firefox 3.7 Alpha 5 Pre has been uploaded to the Mozilla ftp site. The major addition to this Firefox release is the new add-on manager the developer’s have been talking about earlier.
It is now possible to open the add-ons manager in a tab by typing about:addons. The new interface displays add-ons, themes, languages, plugins, search engines and the ability to get more add-ons in the left sidebar and the available data on the right part of the screen.
Some features, like the get add-ons menu, is not working yet. The browser header has also been redesigned. Tabs and navigational elements share a single row in the Firefox header. The back and forward buttons are placed on the left side of the tabs while all other elements including reloading a page are placed on the right. That’s confusing to say the least, especially since there are now two X buttons on the right (one for closing tabs, one to stop the page from loading)
Firefox users who want to try the new release can download it for their operating system from the official Mozilla ftp site.
