Mozilla launches Firefox 3.1 Beta 2 with zippier engine and private browsing

Mozilla has announced the release of Firefox 3.1 Beta 2, which is the first browser to include the private browsing mode. The new release features a brand new JavaScipt engine called TraceMonkey, as well as the much-hyped stealth-browsing mode. Private browsing was a feature we did announce a few months back as a new add on to Firefox. The new “Private Browsing” feature allows users to surf the Internet in total privacy. There are similar versions of this being added to the Google browser Chrome, as well as Apple’s Safari, and Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. It allows users to surf the web without having a trail keep track of where they are going.

Firefox is already looking to develop a newer version called Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 to be available for use in February of 2009.
