Firefox 3.0 to support offline web applications

Posted on Wednesday, February 28 2007 @ 17:41:37 CET by

In the third or fourth quarter of this year Mozilla will unleash Firefox 3.0. The first alpha version was already unveiled earlier this month and some new details appeared on the web today about the new features offered by version 3.0.
While the final feature set hasn't been determined, Firefox 3.0 will also contain elements for its 4.0 release and beyond, said Mike Schroepfer, vice president for engineering for Mozilla, during a stop in London on Tuesday. The browser is due out in the second half of the year.

"What we're trying to do with all of these things is lay the foundation," Schroepfer said.
Some of the new features:
  • Offline web application support. For example, this would allow you to write e-mails in Gmaile while offline. Later when you connect to the internet you'll be able to sent the data.
  • Some changes to the bookmarks and history features, like a function to automatically sort bookmarks by popularity and frequency.
  • A new small embedded SQL Lite database for full-text indexing of your browser's history. This would allow you to search for images and text and see the chached page. However, it's possible that this version won't make it into Firefox 3.0, in that case you may have to wait until Firefox 4.0.
