Editor’s note: Mozilla released Fennec 1.0 beta 1 on Tuesday, March 17, 2009 at 5:37 pm PT. We’ve excerpted from Stuart Parmenter’s blog about the milestone below. You can read the full blog post here or find out more by reading the release notes.
On the feature front, we’ve enabled plugins so you can now watch videos on your favorite sites, and we’ve got in our first pass at improved bookmark management and support for bookmark folders. A lot of time was spent on infrastructure that we could use to build the rest of our app with. You’re now able to scroll things like preferences and the new bookmarks list. One of our main focuses for the next milestone will be on polishing the user interface — areas like the extension manager will get a face lift and we’ll start working more on some of the usability issues people have reported.
