Here's what's new in Firefox 1.5:

* Automated update to streamline product upgrades. Notification of an update is more prominent, and updates to Firefox may now be half a megabyte or smaller. Updating extensions has also improved.
* Faster browser navigation with improvements to back and forward button performance.
* Drag and drop reordering for browser tabs.
* Improvements to popup blocking.
* Clear Private Data feature provides an easy way to quickly remove personal data through a menu item or keyboard shortcut.
* Answers.com is added to the search engine list.
* Improvements to product usability including descriptive error pages, redesigned options menu, RSS discovery, and "Safe Mode" experience.
* Better accessibility including support for DHTML accessibility and assistive technologies such as the Window-Eyes 5.5 beta screen reader for Microsoft Windows. Screen readers read aloud all available information in applications and documents or show the information on a Braille display, enabling blind and visually impaired users to use equivalent software functionality as their sighted peers.
* Report a broken Web site wizard to report Web sites that are not working in Firefox.
* Better support for Mac OS X (10.2 and greater) including profile migration from Safari and Mac Internet Explorer.
* New support for Web Standards including SVG, CSS 2 and CSS 3, and JavaScript 1.6.
* Many security enhancements.

Thanks!

Edit: Don't worry about the Noia Skin problem, just click on search for updates and it'll find one ;).

Been using it for a while, good to see it finally finalized. They did fix the one bug that I hated the most. When installing firefox it used to create an empy folder in your startmenu even if you unchecked the option to create shortcuts during setup.

Wow, amazing. The I figured the speed increase would hardly be noticable, boy was I wrong.

I don't like the options menu though, but that's about it. Can't wait for new versions of Tab Mix and Download Manager Tweak. Especially the former, I've grown quite attached to double-clicking a tab to close it :p

Good job Mozilla!
