We’ve all got used to Firefox 3.0, but 3.1 is heading down the read to a computer near you. Mozilla has just given a public preview release of the third beta of 3.1. As the company said in a blog, this release is meant for “developer testing and community feedback.”

Among the new features in 3.1 are Private Browsing Mode, which lets users “Forget This Site” using the History sidebar, and also offers support for several new web technologies, such as W3C Geolocation API.

The new version supposedly offers greater stability because of the TraceMonkey Java Script and an improved Gecko layout should mean quicker content rendering.
