Firefox 3.6 Rotate: Hints Apple Tablet

Last week, we benchmarked Firefox 3.6 and proved it’s 1/4 Times faster than 3.5.3.

The upcoming Firefox has one unique feature that we haven’t seen in any of the browsers, yet. It can rotate/tilt based on accelerometer put in your laptop, similar to the one seen in the iPhone.

But why would you want it? Firefox 3.6 can recognize your screen orientation and adapt accordingly is awesome and signifies that we’ll see more and more accelerometer-equipped lappies in the future. Not convinced? Read on

It will fuel the fire to Apple Tablet rumors. Why? Because you can’t really think about using this feature and finding it too useful on a regular laptop. It’s much easier to imagine it on a keyboard-less, thin, compact device which you can easily turn into a vertical position.

Apple Tablet PCs will be available in Two Models – 6″ and 10″

It’s good to see that Firefox is leading the innovation, one step ahead of other browsers. Though 3.6  intends to be about bug fixes and stability, it does come out with some useful features: install plugins without restart, javascript, CSS performance improvements, etc.

Check out the video for demonstration of this new feature: Rotation
