Mozilla developers are pushing forward on Firefox 6.
That’s right – Firefox 6 – and no that’s not a typo. As part of the Mozilla rapid release mantra, Mozilla has Firefox 5 in its beta channel and now has Firefox 6 in the Aurora channel.
The key new item highlight by Mozilla in Firefox 6 is the inclusion of the progress element. We’ve all seen progress bars for software that is loading and there are all kinds of ways of achieving that affect.
Now Mozilla is baking in one way with <progress>.
“This element can be used to give a visual cue of something in progress in the page,” Mozilla stated in a post describing Aurora 6.
