Firefox 11 Released With Add-On Sync [blog.mozilla.com]
Firefox for Windows, Mac and Linux adds new in-product developer tools that make it easier to visualize page elements. Firefox also expands Firefox Sync capabilities to let users sync add-ons across computers.
Firefox includes new developer tools that represent the structure of websites in a new way and make it easier to live-edit CSS code. The first is a powerful visual layout tool unique to Firefox, Page Inspector 3D View. Nicknamed Tilt, it is a brand new WebGL-based website visualization tool that highlights the structure of a page better than a flat view, so anyone can immediately understand the relationship of the code to the page output. While developer tools like “view source” have always been useful to learn about how to develop a page, the 3D View more clearly illustrates how the parts of a website are structured. After selecting “3D” View in Page Inspector, just hover your mouse over the elements to get more information about each piece you select.

Firefox now includes the new Style Editor tool, which allows developers to edit CSS stylesheets like a text editor and see changes instantly, entirely within the browser.
It’s a quick and easy way to iterate and test designs on a website. Once changes are made, the Firefox Style Editor provides a simple way to save the file to your computer.

Firefox introduces Add-on Sync.

I think the most important thing in this release is the exploit bug-fix. I agree the numbering has gone demented, though.

3d is very sluggish on my netbook - but very cool and likely to be useful.

Differences between releases are now so small that I did not even realise that the upgrade was to a new major version until I came across this thread.
