The new Firefox 5 is here. Mozilla did not yet publish the Firefox 5 announcement on their site, but 9to5Mac published the direct download links for Mac OS X, Windows and Linuxhere.
I already installed Firefox 5 on Mac OS X. I have it running since a couple of hours and it seems to behave better than FF 4 in terms of memory and CPU usage. Besides performance there are several other improvements found in Firefox 5 including CSS animation, HTML5 and more.
Mozilla accelerated the release schedule for Firefox. The beta of Firefox 5 just launched a couple weeks ago and Firefox 6 is on the way.
I have now settled using three browsers at the same time for work. Firefox, Safari and Chrome. I have Firefox and Chrome side by side and Safari is on a its own expose desktop. I started using Chrome just recently as FF 4 hogged the system after a couple of hours when having two Windows open. Maybe with Firefox 5 I could get rid of Chrome again, but I do not have time to test this.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
