Mozilla & Gecko clones As was anticipated, the boys and girls at Mozilla have released the final build of Firefox 3.5 today. Firefox 3.5 - originally supposed to be 3.1 - comes with many welcome improvements, chief among which is support for HTML5 audio and video tags.

(My gf prefers Opera because it doesn't reload the previous page when hitting Back. This would be nice to have.)


Firefox behaves the same way, I think. A proper web site will provide the validity period of a response via the Expires HTTP header. Firefox won't reload the page upon pressing Back unless it's expired. Firefox 2 (iirc) introduced the "Back-Forward Cache", which speeds this process up significantly.
