Pre-beta Firefox preview

Last peek before official release

Mozilla has unveiled the last planned alpha update to Firefox 3.0 before it brings the new browser into beta testing.

Alpha 6 of Firefox 3.0, or Gran Paradiso, includes an upgraded SQLite engine, a new history and bookmark manager. Other Alpha 6 upgrades include improved cookie performance, support for site-specific preferences (such as text size) and enhancements of the add-on and download tools.

The release is for web developers and the Mozilla testing community only, and regular end users strongly advised to stick with the stable Firefox 2 for now, the company says.

Mozilla plans to release the first public version of Firefox 3.0 Beta 1 on July 31.
