Message Text: Firefox 10 for Windows, Mac and Linux adds built-in developer tools and delivers smoother updates by making add-ons compatible by default.

The latest update to the popular browser adds a number of new built-in developer tools that let developers change the look and feel of websites in real-time. With Page Inspector, developers can peek into a page?s structure and layout without having to leave Firefox. This means they can quickly navigate between page elements and view the HTML document structure for the page. Style Inspector makes editing the style of websites even easier. Now developers have quick access to CSS properties and can view or change values for their website within Firefox. Scratchpad now uses the Eclipse Orion code editor to provide syntax highlighting and other features that make it easier to write JavaScript.

Firefox also introduces the Mozilla Full-Screen API for websites and Web applications, allowing developers to build games, video experiences and rich presentation sharing - all in the entire screen. W

Firefox also adds support for features that make it easier to build 3D Web experiences with open technologies. Mozilla inreoduces WebGL in Firefox. WebGL is a Web standard that allows websites and Web apps to display hardware-accelerated 3D graphics without third-party software. Firefox now supports Anti-Aliasing for WebGL, allowing developers to create objects that blend together and move smoothly. Firefox also supports CSS 3D Transforms, which lets developers animate and transform two dimensional elements into 3D using HTML5 without the need for third-party plugins.

Mozilla has also improved Firefox Add-on compatibility and simplified the update process for all users. By default, most add-ons will be compatible with new versions of Firefox, and users will have an easier time managing and updating their add-ons to new versions of the browser.

In previous versions of Firefox, Mozilla assumed add-ons weren?t compatible with new versions of the browser unless they had specifically been re-released for a new browser version; the result was that many users put off upgrades until new versions of their add-ons were available. Firefox 10 also polls for new versions of add-ons once a day, and installs them if an update is found.

Windows, Mac and Linux editions of Firefox 10 can be downloaded manually from Mozilla's site.
