Notable New Features in the Recent Firefox Updates

Supposedly, 2010 is going to be the year that web developers (and hopefully designers) are going to embrace the power of HTML 5 & CSS 3 and obviously, in order for any of these cool new technologies to actually be visible to the user, our browsers are going to need to implement the rendering of them.
