The Mozilla Foundation says that it will be releasing monthly alpha versions of its Firefox 3 browser. In an updated calendar the company says that it will have a planned first beta at the end of July.
Among the changes, Firefox 3 will provide platform support to enable syncing of Places datamodel objects to a remote server. It will provide backup and restore functionality for bookmarks.
It will be possible to install Add-on without requiring a browser restart and the download manager will work with third-party virus scanners and malware protection.
The Gecko engine will have added UI elements for enabling offline application usage, print layout improvements and be able to save web pages as PDF documents.
