Deer Park: Firefox 1.1 Alpha Release

Category: Browsers, Firefox

In case you missed it, the Mozilla Foundation recently released Deer Park Alpha 1, a developer preview of Firefox 1.1. In addition to various miscellaneous fixes (my favorite being that scrollable divs now response to the mouse wheel), Deer Park includes the new SVG, canvas, and E4X technologies that we’ve mentioned before. Download it and play with the future of the web.

I couldn’t get the canvas feature to work, and the SVG stuff is fairly spotty at this point, but its fun to play. Safari on the other hand already has full canvas support and is starting work on their SVG implementation.

So, what about SVG, canvas, and E4X in Internet Explorer 7/8? We’re in touch with some folks at Microsoft, and we’ll let you know when/if we find out anything…

Msft has had E4X implementation for a year already, they have just been delaying putting it in b/c they want everyone to code webapps in XAML

Yup, they were co-editors of the spec… but the question is whether or not IE will get it.
