Firefox 3.1 becomes 3.5
The update will also incorporate a Private Browsing mode, enabling users to browse websites without leaving a record of where they have been. Beltzner further hopes Firefox will gain extra attention with the new numbering, though he observes that the shift to v3.5 will bring no features not originally planned for v3.1. The new designation will take effect with beta 4 of the update, scheduled to be uploaded April 14th. Firefox 3.1 beta 3 is still scheduled to go online on Thursday.
