First Mac-Compatible Milestone of Mozilla Firebird Released

The Mozilla Organization has released Firebird 0.6, codenamed Glendale. This is the first milestone build of the standalone browser, formerly known as Phoenix, to use the new Firebird name. The release also marks the first milestone build to include Mac support. From the release notes:

New default theme
Mozilla Firebird 0.6 sports a crisp, fresh and attractive theme, based on the amazing Qute theme by Arvid Axelsson. Also, the new theme has icons for the Bookmark Manager toolbar.

Redesigned Preferences window
The new Options window puts the most often used preferences into seven convenient panels, each with a descriptive icon selector.

Improved Privacy Options
With a single click (and a confirmation) you can clear all privacy data including form data, history, cache, cookies, etc.

As we already reported, the organization decided to give greater priority to its standalone applications, the Firebird browser and Thunderbird mail application. For more information, please read the Mozilla branding strategy and roadmap.

Firebird can be downloaded for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X at the projectis Web site:
