The Burning Edge, an online log tracking the latest developments in Firefox nightly builds, has a new feature called The Bigger Picture which lists some of the more major developments in Firefox since the 0.8 (Royal Oak) release.

After only a quick glance at the list of new features and fixes, it looks like Firefox 0.9 (One Tree Hill) is going to be awesome. Here's a short list of some of the more exciting advancements, in my opinion:

  1. "Copy Image" on image context menus (Windows and Mac)
  2. The addition of the opacity CSS3 property
  3. String-related changes that make Firefox 3% faster

And as if that weren't enough, according to the Firefox Roadmap we still have default extension bundles and a SmartUpdate feature to look forward to.

I can't wait for the release, and luckily for me I won't have to for very long. Firefox 0.9 is expected to ship either this month or next.
