Firefox 10

Mozilla has released finished versions of Firefox 10 for both Mac OS X and Windows. According to the release notes, include a Forward navigation button that doesn't show up until users hit the Back button first, included APIs for viewing web apps in full-screen mode, and anti-aliasing for WebGL graphics.

Firefox 10 also starts the Extended Support Release that allows enterprises to only download security updates and stay on the same version for seven releases.

It is also interesting to note that CSS3 3D-Transforms is also added into Firefox 10.

System requirement for Firefox 10 shows double standards between Mac and Windows platforms. Firefox 10 only support Intel-base Macs with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) being the oldest operating system supported. While in Windows platform, almost 12-year-old technology Windows 2000 is still being supported.

Let's not forget, it was after the release of Firefox 4 last March (2011) that Mozilla decided to rush out the Firefox major version release cycle to 6-week, making each major increment not as meaningful as it used to be.
